Speed and Length Measurement 

Speed Draw Instrumentation


Speed Draw System
Avtron Model K885 Speed/Draw System

The Avtron Model K885 Speed/Draw System is intended for both drive controlled sectional machines and line shaft machines. It can be used on several machines at once. The system accepts pulses from rotary pulse generators, tachs, encoders and displays speeds and draws at different remote stations installed on a serial link. The K885 is more economical to install than previous systems, and is easier to interface to mill-wide data collection systems.
  • Multi-station display and automatic monitoring
  • Measures speeds, draws, and currents
  • Fast and accurate to 0.01% with one second updates
  • Monitors up to 64 sections at one time
  • Ideal on continuous web machines with multiple controlled sections
  • Optional machine and drive system diagnostics

Reliability and Maintenance

The K885 is designed for use in mill environments, where the air is hot, humid, and has trace amounts of corrosive compounds.

The K885 cabinet is totally enclosed, non-ventilated, and requires no internal fan or air conditioning. It has no exposed contacts or switches and has fewer circuit boards than older systems. The K885 includes complete built-in self test functions to assist in calibration, set-up, and internal diagnostics.

Speed/Draw Remotes

The Avtron Model K885 can be provided with many types of remote readout/selector stations. Installation is via a simple, 4-wire serial link.
