Paper tear monitor

The WT4-3, WT9-3 or WT12-3 miniature and small photoelectric sensors detect paper tears fast and reliably. Equally important is the absolutely reliable detection of the paper web, even with varying surface reflections. This prevents unnecessary machine downtime. Background suppression ensures that the rear web has no impact on the paper tear check of the front web.
