The Integrated Controller (IC) is an option to accompany the Raven sensor. The IC allows the user to establish alarm conditions for glass presented in the improper orientation. For example, soft coat lowE with the coating down or rear on the rollers may be alarmed.
Raven will discriminate the following products:
- Clear (not coated) - Single silver lowE - Double silver lowE - Triple silver lowE - 4th surface lowE (ex i89 or IS15)
- Processor - LCD screen with software to set alarms - 24 VDC power supply - Power distribution - Audible and visual (red light) alarms
Osprey®7 Distortion + Flatness Inspection System for Glass and Plastic
The Osprey 7 is the world leading on-line measurement system for tempered glass, and is the only measurement system in the world capable of meeting the requirements of PPG Certified Fabricators, Guardian Select Fabricators, and suppliers to USA government contracts. First developed in 1999, over 190 Osprey systems operate in tempering plants on 5 continents. Osprey 6 was launched in 2014 and provides state-of-the-art technology in optical distortion measurement in heat-treated glass and plastic.
The Osprey 6 provides true optical measurement in lens power (diopters) as seen by the customer! The Osprey 6 measures all types of optical distortion including roll wave, edge kink, local bow, pocket, side kink, hammer, bird’s eye, picture framing, belly banding, edge lift and all other types of distortion. Utilizing patented optics, high-speed cameras and powerful algorithms, Osprey 6 by LiteSentry™ is the industry standard.
Owl™2 Mass Measurement & Closed-Loop Tempering Furnace Control for Batch Tempering Lines
Owl™2 is the all new design of LiteSentry’s successful Owl™ Mass Measurement System, first installed in 2002. The Owl 2 is a non-contact optical system measuring the thickness, type of coating and area of the glass as it approaches the furnace. Information is transmitted to the furnace control system and the furnace automatically selects a recipe and optimizes the heat profile to (1) optimize cycle time and (2) minimize distortion and roll wave. Productivity and quality proven to increase over 20%!
Hawk®4 Scratch and Defect Inspection System for Glass
Hawk®4 by LiteSentry™ is a high-resolution camera-based inspection system. Inspects both front and rear surfaces of monolithic glass as it moves down the fabrication line. This on-line defect inspection system operates at conveyor velocities up to 900 mm/s, the fastest in the industry. Applications include IG / Double or Triple Glaze, Lamination and Coating lines.
- Prevents defects from proceeding to high value-added operations. - Keeps defects out of your customer’s sight. - Improved quality = increased profit.
The Raven™ by LiteSentry™ Thickness & Coating Sensor measures moving or stationary glass on-line to +/-0.1 mm. This non-contact glass thickness sensor provides 100% inspection, replacing periodic human inspection. Monitors glass thickness. Confirms critical dimensions. Eliminates costly errors.
- LED-based simple spectrometer, integral electronics and embedded algorithms - On-line at glass velocities up to 700 mm/s - Discriminates Clear from low E coated glass. - Discriminates single, double and triple silver lowE coatings. - Thickness measurement range: 0 – 35.0 mm. - Mounts above glass. No components below glass. - Rugged aluminum and steel housing intended for industrial environments - Accuracy: +/-0.1 mm for 0-8 mm, +/- 0.15 mm for 9-35 mm glass thickness - Outputs: Local alphanumeric LED display in mm and coating - Remote output via Cat5 network connection and open-source XML output. - 110 or 208-220 VAC input to DC power supply (provided) - 5 meter (16 ft.) cable provided
