The DEKKA Sentry 4 Tape Alert System monitors tape head operation and notifies nearby operators of current or upcoming issues with the tape head. Alarms for low tape levels and case sealing issues ensure that operators are alerted immediately to avoid minor problems from escalating.
The Sentry 4 consists of special DEKKA tape heads with built-in control units that provide power to proximity sensors. Operators are alerted both audibly and visually with a tri-light beacon to quickly grab the attention of nearby operators.
Operators are often too busy to notice issues with the tape head such as missed cuts or low levels of tape on the roll. Not realizing that a tape head has run out of tape for several minutes can cause significant slowdowns or even stoppages in production.
Low tape level on the roll No tape or broken tape Continuous or uncut tape Tape fouled or wound around the front case contact roller (depending on the circumstances)
Stacked tri-light beacon for visual alarm to quickly alert operators of issue. This is especially important for noisy operations where operators wear earplugs.
Depending on the tape roll or preference of the operator, the sensitivity on the low tape roll alarm can be adjusted to trigger when desired.
High quality waterproof cable connectors for resistance to moist environments and prolonging overall product life.
