Reliable sheet break detection in the toughest conditions

KPM KB2 Fiber-Optic Sheet Break Detector is recognized as the best sheet break detector on the market. In addition to open-draw applications, it can detect breaks against felt, wire or even a cylinder.  With the latest RGB technology enabling 50 percent more light, KPM KB2 allows longer measurement distances and can operate in a high ambient light condition.

The non-contact sensor is placed above or under the web to be monitored, and the air-purged system in the sensor head allows the optics to not be affected by dirt, steam or temperatures.
