The Electronic Yarn Detector is maintenance free and wear resisting.
Disadvantages of mechanical yarn detectors:
Central adjustment of winding tension for the whole machine according to the reliability of the most un favourable yarn detector to avoid unmotivated release
This tension level often exceeds the technological requirements by far and results in yarn elongation loss
Alternating mechanical yarn detectors often cause unnecessary fibre feed before the spinning position is actually stopped, what increases good fibre loss
High maintenance costs to avoid over-feeding due to malfunctioning mechanical yarn detectors
The Electronic Yarn Detector easily solves all these problems of the mechanical yarn detector.
