Courtesy: Honeywell Process SolutionsHoneywell (NYSE:HON) Process Solutions’ (HPS) ZipLine Scanning Measurement Device is a self-contained scanning measurement device designed to provide high-speed measurement of flat sheets. ZipLine features a flat sheet scanning system for easier installation. It also replaces the rigid O-frame structure of traditional scanners with tensioned stainless steel cables that support intelligent, self-driven measurement modules. Tensioned cables are also used to supply power and secondary support to the measurement modules. A secure Wi-Fi network provides communication between the modules and the support system, and an onboard compressor provides air to the sensor. These features eliminate the need for a moving power track to manage cables and hoses. ZipLine measurement modules are capable of scanning at high speeds—up to 400 mm per second—and deliver high-resolution basis weight profiles. The measurement modules can be removed for periodic repairs along with easy accessibility to the ZipLine’s measurement support processor to allow simplified maintenance.
