As promised, todays topic is the specialty branch of the CS-5100 series of sonic controls: The CS-5140. This ultrasonic controls is distinguished from all of our other controls by the addition of three extra transducers, meaning that this model has 4 total ultrasonic transducers within the boom.
Like the CS-5100, the CS-5140 has no stand and is comprised of the boom (sometimes called the nose) which contains the special MX4 transducer board, a 15′ long 9-conductor cable, and an electrical enclosure containing our state-of-the-art, all new CB-5501M control board.
The necessity for a multiple transducer array can be seen in any line with vertical or horizontal stock movement. The CS-5140 can cope with either, depending on the chosen orientation, and accurately sense the stock height even with loop movement, by substantially widening the sensing area of the unit.
