CEPA
(Computer Enhanced Process Analyzer)

Real-time runner display and control plus full complement of rack & production counters and data gathering capabilities.

The CEPA delivers real-time runner length on up to 4 warp positions. Should the runner be out of tolerance, CEPA will alarm or stop the machine. For earlier series gearbox let-off systems, CEPA adjusts the gearboxes via servo motor connection to maintain runners within tight tolerances.

System features & capabilities

  • Menu-driven keyboard programming

  • Update runner value every 15-30 seconds 

  • Programmable runner tolerance with (3) outputs: servo loop, alarm, shut-down

  • Expedites style changes

  • Select racks, picks and M-pick counters

  • Programmable shift, order, roll, and totalizing counters

  • Host PC communication
