Digital Thread Counter with Thread Position Display

The digital thread counter CAMSCAN 5203 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

High Operational Reliability

  • Computer-controlled signal processing
  • Stop display
  • Display to control the counting function of each camera

Reliable Stopping of the Machine

  • Detection and counting of every thread
  • Fast detection of faults in the yarn sheet
  • Also stops the machine at an incorrect thread number


  • Modular built camera system in working widths from 21” to 85”
  • Wider widths are available on request
  • Large-sized matrix display available as an option


  • Permanent nominal/actual value comparison between the pre-set and actual number of threads
  • The fault position is displayed on the integrated 4.3 inch colour screen
  • Adjustable multiple evaluation function and an automatic noise reduction system to reduce false stops caused by e.g. jumping threads

Easy Operation

  • Programming the operating parameters via robust membrane keypad directly at the control unit
  • Easy to operate menu control in different user languages
  • Display possibility for the reception level and the adjustment state of each camera
