New Manual

A new non-contacting loop control as revolutionary as the Coiltek® CS-5000 V2 deserves an updated, easy-to-use manual. And our customers deserve to have it instantly at their fingertips. That’s why our brand new, full-color manual is available both in a free physical copy with your new Coiltek® loop control, and instantly online as a printable PDF.

In the manual we discuss topics such as setting-up your unit, both manually and with a USB connected laptop, diagrams for wiring, inputs, and terminals, notes on software, and much more. To check out the new updated manual for the Coiltek® CS-5000 V2, click here.

Coming Soon: Fail-Safe Loop Controls

Coiltek has been creating ultrasonic loop control systems for over 30 years, and we have continued to update and innovate within this niche. Even with all of our efforts to create a reliable product, sometimes things still go wrong. Up till now, without a backup, that meant a down line until a replacement could be obtained.

Not anymore. Soon we will be introducing a product with two kinds of loop controls integrated into a single system, which we create a self-regulating, fail-safe device to keep a line up-and-running even when one half of the system is down.

Stay tuned for more details about this exciting new development!

Installation and Set Up

We are always trying to make your day easier, and that’s why we have a lot of our information readily available on our website. If you ever need to reference the set up your ultrasonic non-contact loop control, the procedure for either our older style CB-5101M board or the NEW CB-5501M board, you can find that information here.

You can also find information on installing our 3CPO and H14 Hammerhead accessories for the CS-5000 and CS-5100 series non-contact loop controls. These step-by-step instructions even include pictures to ensure ease of set up.

Replacement Parts from Coiltek®

A line is a big investment, and when it goes down, you loose money. That’s why we strive to make products that stand the test of time. Many of our boards have lasted in the field for over 15 years. In fact we have seen many boards sent in for repair that are over 20 years old, and many of those can actually be repaired.

For those times when a repair just isn’t fast enough, we also supply replacement boards. We keep all of our boards and cables in stock at all times so that we can get you up and running again ASAP.

We also design all our equipment to be backwards compatible. That means that even if your loop control is 20 years old, if the stand is still in tact, you can just replace the boards with our new CB-5501M control board and CB-5101R-1 ranging card, and bring your unit back to life.

If you have any questions about replacement boards or repairs, or to request an RMA number for your repair, please contact us. For more info on Coiltek, our high-quality, American made loop control systems, check out our main site.

Coiltek® Downloads Page

We get a lot of phone calls requesting new copies of manuals and enquiring as to where our signature software can be obtained. Both of these items, and much more, including brochures and trouble-shooting materials, can be downloaded for free from our website on our Downloads page.

If you need any further information, have a question, or a new application, let us know by contacting us.

Introducing the new CS-6200 no-touch loop control

Our popular Coiltek CS-6100 line of non-contact loop controls has finally become obsolete, but don’t fret; we have a new low cost, highly reliable, American-made no-touch loop control system to take its place.

Introducing the new CS-6200 ultrasonic loop control system from Coiltek. This exciting new product line features much of the same technology found in our industry standard CS-5000 V2 line of non-contacting loop controls, and has many of the same capabilities: Instant push-button calibration, on-board storage for up to 8 programs, and optional remote access to up to 3 preset programs, plus much more!

If you would like more information about this product line and it’s uses, such as in the plastic tubing industry, please check out our brochure. If you have further questions or would like up-to-date pricing, please contact us

CS-5000-72xx

Our best selling product, the CS-5000-72xx is the industry standard in non-contacting loop controls. And it’s not hard to see why. With an outstanding list of features and unrivaled ability for customization, not to mention a full line of useful accessories and free lifetime over-the-phone customer support, the CS-5000 series of no-touch loop controls is the gold standard.

Each CS-5000 is a custom build, with customers first choosing their stand height (15″, 54″, 72″, or 84″), with our 72″ stands being the most popular (hence the 72 in the part number mentioned earlier in this post). Customers then choose a boom length, which replaces the xx in the part number. With a wide range of boom lengths between 11″ and 48″, customers can order exactly what they need.

The new CS-5000 series of non-contacting loop controls contains our state-of-the-art new CB-5501M main control board. This new board has all the features of the previous generation CB-5101M board, such as on-board storage for up to 8 preset programs and remote access to 3 presets, plus virtually instantaneous push-button calibration that lets you set your unit up in seconds, USB compatibility for remote set-up, and a program-locking jumper. Best of all, the new board is completely backwards compatible, making it easy and affordable to update your current system by simply buying a replacement board.

CS-5000-54XX

The standard Coiltek loop control model, the CS-5000, comes in three different stand heights. Last time I discussed the benefits of the CS-5000-15XX, which comes with a 15″ tall stand and a customer-dictated boom length (represented by the XX in the name). This time, we will talk about the next size up, the CS-5000-54XX.

The CS-5000-54XX, as the name suggests, features a 54″ tall stand and a variable boom length, which is dictated by customer need. If, for instance, you need to position your loop control further away from the line or have wide stock, choose a longer boom. If you want your stand closer to your line, choose a shorter boom. When ordering a stand, the XX in the part number can be replaced by the chosen boom length. You can choose between many boom lengths, from 11″ to 48″. The most popular combination boom length for the 54″ tall stand is the 11″ boom, otherwise known as a CS-5000-5411.

The CS-5000-54XX can be used over pits, if necessary, and with a variety of different materials, from steel to plastic tubing. This reliable, adaptable system can also be used with a world of accessories to enhance its performance, such as the CTAC-2 sound isolation cone, the Hammerhead multiple transducer assembly, and the 3CPO, which grants remote access to 3 preset programs.

The CS-5100 Line of Ultrasonic Loop Controls

Here at Coiltek we sometimes joke that the CS-5100 line of loop controls are the Jan Brady of our loop control family. The tall, industry standard CS-5000 series is the Marsha, getting lots of attention for its adaptability and capable, reliable handling of lines big and small. The CS-6200 is the baby of the family, a small, affordable line that is perfect for many applications, such as plastic medical tubing, and representing a large step up for those looking to replace an existing Sonatrol unit.

Then there’s our CS-5100 series. It’s the proverbial middle child. It’s smaller than the CS-5000, because it lacks a stand, but it’s just as powerful, since it features the same new and updated CB-5501M control board. However, like the CS-6200 it is small, consisting of just an 11″ tubular housing (the nose or boom) containing the sensor, a 15′ long cable, and an electrical enclosure containing the powerful new CB-5501M control board.

The best of both worlds, the CS-5100 is as powerful as it is portable, and while you may not move it much within your shop, it’s small size is a boon when it comes to shipping costs. Likewise, all the accessories for our loop controls, from the Hammerhead, to the Cone of Silence, to the 3CPO are all compatible with these small but mighty units.

This series also has some very special add-ons for wide stock applications, which we will look at tomorrow. In the meantime, if you would like more information on our CS-5100 series of sonic loop controls, please visit our website, check out our brochures, and contact us.
