Digital Thread Counter with Thread Position Display

The digital thread counter CAMSCAN 5201 for warping, beaming, sizing, draw warping and similar machinery is a monitoring system to control the yarn sheet for missing threads or an incorrect number of threads. In addition, the system is capable of not only  detecting but also displaying the actual position of the missing thread in the yarn sheet.

  • Always the correct number of threads
  • Immediate machine stop in case of yarn breakage
  • For warping, beaming and sizing machines
