New Products: Weld Cap Sensors

WTS10 weld cap sensors check the quality of welding cap fronts and detect faults such as inclusions, faulty dressing, or burrs

WTS10 weld cap sensors check the quality of welding cap fronts and detect faults such as inclusions, faulty dressing, or burrs. These diffuse-mode sensors provide stability against discrepancies in the cap’s position and angle. Upper and lower welding caps are checked simultaneously and provide prefault (near the limit) indication for proactive maintenance. A pushbutton teach mode facilitates quick and easy sensor programming.

The sensors have a scratch-resistant mineral glass lens, provide ±2-mm position and ±1.5° tilt-angle tolerance, and a consistent 2 to 12-mm detection range, regardless of the cap’s length or if it is brand new or a fully dressed tip. Highly visible LEDs provide status indication for “good,” “prefault” and “fault” weld-tip status.
