ARIS SCU5 Sensor and Web Guide Control Unit

A Smart Controller for Simple and Easy Operation

Its compact and lightweight design houses the most advanced control system for web sensing and web guiding applications

ARIS SCU5 controller is the brain of the ARIS Web Position Sensors and ARIS Web Guiding Systems that makes web guiding and web detection easier for you.

Products for a Wide Range of Web Position Sensor and Web Guiding Applications

Accurate Sensing Makes Your Converting Process Easier to Control

A compact lightweight design allows for easy installation on the production line with its aluminum enclosure or on a DIN rail on a control panel with the modular enclosure

With six models, the ARIS SCU5 line of controllers provide sensor processing and web guiding control

ARIS SCU5, ARIS SCU5 D and ARIS SCU5 C for sensor processing

ARIS SCU5 M, ARIS SCU5 MD and ARIS SCU5 MCD for web guiding control

ARIS SCU5 for Sensor Processing Applications

Simple solution for complex web position sensor applications.

ARIS SCU5, ARIS SCU5 D, and ARIS SCU5 C provide the necessary web position measurement features to help you be aware of web location in your converting process. Along with the ARIS Web Position Sensors offers the basic features for web position monitoring by providing an analog output based on the raw image taken by the sensor.

ARIS SCU5 can also be used to retrofit older web guiding systems by providing an analog interface. Older web guiding systems that operate on 0 to 5V or 0 to 10 mA sensor feedback can be seamlessly upgraded state-of-art sensor measurement provided by ARIS SCU5.

ARIS SCU5 - Basic web position monitoring with analog output.

ARIS SCU5 D - Features an operator interface on the control enclosure.

ARIS SCU5 C - Communications option through EtherNet/IP or PROFINET

ARIS SCU5 for Web Guiding Applications

Making web guiding easy

ARIS SCU5 M, ARIS SCU5 MD, and ARIS SCU5 MC features the smart ARIS SCU5 controller along with a linear actuator and motor driver. When coupled with the one of the ARIS WPS web position sensors and the ARIS displacement or steering guide mechanism, ARIS SCU5 for web guiding applications will allow for edge, center, contrast, and line guiding without the need for cumbersome calibrations.

ARIS SCU5 M - Basic web guiding control

ARIS SCU5 MD - Web guiding control with icon based operator interface

ARIS SCU5 MCD - Added feature of Web Guiding Communications option through EtherNet/IP or PROFINET, allowing for remote control through industrial ethernet. Data access anytime, anywhere.

  • The easiest sensor and web guiding control unit to install and operate in the industry
  • From a simple analog output to EtherNet/IP communication to suit your particular controller needs
  • Control up to two ARIS WPS Sensors for center guiding or web center position monitoring, and web width monitoring or measurement

General Specifications

Operator InterfaceAs an optional feature, the icon based operator interface allows for guide point adjustment and application selection with a touch of the respective icon on the pressure sensitive screenOptional color touch screen
LanguagesLanguage independent icons eliminate the need for language translations. The intuitive icons enable easy operation in any country without the need to modify the control panel. Language independent
Motor DriverA standard feature of all our web guiding solutions, linear hybrid stepper motors. These actuators eliminate the compliant transmission in web guides and provide a more reliable and high dynamics response. The anti-rotation mechanism in the actuator also greatly improve the reliability of our system. High performance, high efficiency, exceptional endurance, and much quieter motor, ensuring precise positioning, rapid motion and long life.Microstepping drive
