Connectric IN-PROCESS Length, Speed Measurement & CUT Control System

The Connectric Length Measurement & Length Control System is economical and  stands out as a versatile, standalone solution for in-process applications which can be easily added to existing and older machinery.  It is characterized by a rich set of features, high quality, and cost-effectiveness. This system excels in monitoring and controlling various processes, including glue dispensation, automated repeated cutting of plastic extrusions, pull measurement tasks, measuring extended lengths of plastic film, hoist position, metal cutting, production monitoring for wood molding machines, carpet cutting, machine speed display, quality control for production lengths, die cutting, and rewinders, among others.  Click here for examples of the systems we have manufactured.

Our satisfied customers are located in the United States and Canada, and we also offer international shipping. The system seamlessly integrates with both older and newer machinery. Optional features such as buzzers, alarms, cut control outputs, batch control outputs, external inputs, timed operations, analog output for drive control, and RS232 or RS485 communications enhance adaptability across multiple industries. It finds applications in plastics extrusion, plastic films, wood, metal, carpet, fabrics, paper, cardboard, or any sheet materials, cranes and hoist position, as well as for machine speed display and control.  

The system's programmability extends to units of measurement, including yards, feet, inches, meters, centimeters, and RPM, with a programmable decimal point position. Its exceptional accuracy facilitates easy automation, enabling quality control and reducing wastage in various industrial processes. 

The Connectric Length & Speed Measurement Systems are cost effective and manufactured to your unique requirements.  Recognizing the distinct needs and setups of each customer, we collaborate to identify your requirements, provide recommendations, and customize the system accordingly.  Additionally it seamlessy integrates with your existing machinery, encoders and wheels.


The new dual display/counter can display speed and shift count simultaneously.  Using the appropriate software, the values can be polled remotely for data logging.



Our LARGE digit display / counters are viewable from long distances and can be used to display machine and conveyor speed.






Some of the functions include:

  • Touch screen easy setting of the required length and batch quantity
  • Automated repeated length control - set the length and the system will send a signal to the cutter or the glue applicator , and reset itself ready for the next cut or application
  • Batch count and control - the 2 line display will increment on every cut.  Set the batch size if you wish, the system will provide an output when the batch size has been reached 
  • Optional solid state relay outputs to signal the cutter, glue applicator or batch quantity 
  • Manual cut control upon reset by a push button
  • Optional scaleable analogue output for drive control to slow and stop product movement during the cut cycle
  • Optional audible or alarm lights when lengths or batch size has been reached 
  • Offset adjustment  - if there is a delay in the cut, the system can accommodate for this on every cut resulting in more accurate cuts, less wastage and reduced requirement for trimming to length
  • Blanking input to stop the count if no product is present (e.g. pull conveyers on extrusion machines)
  • Production shift or total length count regardless of line speed or stoppage time
  • Optional simultaneous speed and shift count (NEW FEATURE)
  • Etc.

Other features:

  • Easy and versatile mounting of the encoder -  our special spring bracket allows for above or below product mounting 
  • Can be used with any existing electronic encoders or sensors, we can scale the display accordingly 
  • Can be programmed in feet, inches,meters with programmable number of decimal points. 
  • Easy to program by the touch screen which can be locked out for programming if required 
  • Standard AC supply - no DC supplies required.  Encoder power provided by the controller 
  • Very accurate - our measuring wheels are ground to 0.05% accuracy
  • Scaleable and fine tunable to meet the most exacting requirements

Customers have the option to order a comprehensive system comprising the control box, encoder, encoder cable, accurate measuring wheel, and a spring-loaded encoder bracket. Alternatively, individual components are available for purchase.
