DataPro 500

Simple To Use

The DataPro 500 is a simple-to-use length and speed indicator for the LaserSpeed series encoders. Any LaserSpeed with a 25-pin connector can be used. The indicator provides the power to the encoder; no other accessories are needed. The indicator is capable of displaying length and speed, selectable from a front panel button. There is also an LED on the front panel to indicate one of many different statuses, such as quality factor, laser on, laser at temp, etc.

Easy Reel/Roll Change

The DP500s dual-relay outputs give the user helpful features, such as reel/roll changeover. In this case, one output is used to signal the slowdown of the line while the second output is used to signal stop and reel/roll changeover.
