The HST Ranger is a smart sensor system for controlling continuous, endless foils, papers, coatings, webs etc. Upper limit and lower limit and the measuring value are visualised on two 100 element LED bar graphs. The range between the upper and lower limit represents the allowable tolerance range for the measuring value, that is proportional to the product weight or material quantity just being in the sensing area of the sensor. Values, i.e. their representation as single elements or bar graphs falling under the pre-set lower limit or exceeding the pre-set upper limit are beyond the tolerance range and will cause alarms by activating the referring switching output.
The HST Ranger can also be delivered with the “HST Ranger Software Package”. After interfacing the control unit by an USB cable to a PC, the sensor system becomes an even more powerful control system. The basic visualisation by bar graphs can be let the same or changed to other bar graph visualisation modes. Additionally the limits and the measuring value are indicated by 3 digit indicators and can be calibrated to suitable values, representing the actual weight, weight/sqm, material flow etc. Very helpful is the adjustment of an averaging time, that avoids too much and un-wished flickering measurement values and smoothes their curve representation in the curve chart. The chart shows additionally the preset limits. Data stored during operation over a pre-set time can imported in spreadsheet programs.
