Autolog is proud to present our new knot identification technology based on the detection of the wood fiber orientation. This new TBS-2 sensor uses a dual laser technology to maximize tracheid data collection for high accuracy knot detection.
The first laser emits a series of dots which are spaced at ¼" and the second laser emits a solid line spaced at ½" from the dotted line.
The first laser line provides information on the direction of the fiber and the second laser line provides information on the tracheid effect in the fiber. By combining this data, we are able to identify knots with a very high level of accuracy and with virtually no false detection.
Here is an example of the color image.
This new sensor is the first in our new series that can operate up to 4000 ft. /min. The operating speed of our sensor allows us to take readings at 1/8" (0.125") at 4000 ft. /min. We can also operate at a speed of 1/10" (0.100") at 3000 ft. /min.
Available by the end of this year
