Self Calibrating Shot Rod Sensors

Sensor Solutions has developed a self-calibrating shot rod sensor to overcome problems of a typical calibrated sensor when placed in die cast machines.  These sensors will calibrate themselves to produce a digital signal which has a 50% duty cycle. The following application note provides information about how shot rod sensors work and explains why Sensor Solutions self-calibrating shot rod sensors should be used in all machines for improved performance and operate gap range.

Self Calibrating Shot Rod Sensors are available for 20 Tooth Per Inch shot rods (SSCR20TPI) and for shot rods with 2mm tooth spacing (SSCR2MM).  These sensors are ideal for use in new equipment or as drop-in replacements in existing machines. Sensors are available with free end wires or MS style connectors for quick connection to the electrical system of the die cast machines. 

Traditional Shot Rod Sensors

Sensor Solutions has been manufacturing improved function and quality shot rod sensors for use in Visi-Trak systems for many years.  Sensors are available for detection of 2mm spaced shot rods and 20 teeth per inch shot rods.

Traditional Shot Rod Sensors are marked for obsolescence as the self-calibrating shot rod sensors are drop-in replacements for the same equipment. Once current material stock is used up, estimated in the summer of 2017, these sensors will no longer be available for purchase.
