Others MWS Multiple Width Measuring System The picture above shows installation of an MWS in a paper mill measuring up to three papertracks in a cutting machine. Multiple Width Meauring System for accurate non-contact width measurement of large objects, e.g. paper tracks or thin sheet MWS offers among others: m m Generally about MWS m MWS, Multiple Width Measuring System, is a noncontact measuring system for width measurement of one or more tracks in e.g. paper machine, cutting machine, rolling mill etc. m m Measuring method m The system measures width of non transparent materials by using cameras and background lighting of the material. The cameras are detecting the edges of the dark measuring object against the light background illumination. m The CMOS cameras are detecting the edge of the dark material against the light background. Technical specifications Measuring range: Accuracy: Frequency: Output signal: 0 - 2100 mm* ±0.5 mm 5 measurements/sec Profibus DP RS485 standard Baud rate 9.6 kbaud - 12MBaud * If requirement from the customer can this range be extended up to 7000mm Every edge is detected by a camera mounted on a mobile rail above the measuring object. The rail follows so the camera is always straight above the measuring objects edge. Communication with control system The measuring rails are connected to a measuring computer which takes care of synchronisation and out read. This measuring computer takes even care of communication with a control system. Non-contact measuring with very high accuracy Large measuring range Insensitive against vibrations and temperature variations Modular and rough construction designed for industrial applications Fast measurements, 5 measurements per second Reliable system managing to measure round the clock, year after year without interruption Custom-made construction The picture above shows a measuring rail with camera and step motor Advantages High accuracy The camera gives high accuracy on a small measuring range. Large measuring range The measuring beam can in principle be unlimited long which means that it can cover a very large measuring range. Independent of the measuring The camera is always above the measuring objects objects thickness edge, which eliminates parallax error. Insensitive against vibrations and temperature movements Because the cameras are mounted so near the track (4 - 20cm), the system will not be affected by vibrations and temperature tensions. Modular construction The system can be equipped with extra beams if necessary. Customer adjusted design Latronix develops and manufactures the whole system under the same roof; therefore we have the possibilities to adjust it according to the customer’s specifications and requirements. Application exempel: The width of three paper webs are detected by four mobile cameras mounted on a beam above the object. The two farthest cameras detect the edge of the dark paper against the light background. In the same way detects the two cameras in the middle the column between the webs. The measured values are calculated and presented as three widths.
