Abstract (en)

The assembly to monitor bands of warp yarns has at least two lasers (L1-L4) with their light beams (44,46,48,50) aligned at least at two receivers (E1-E4). The lasers (L1-L4) are controlled by signals through a common line (42), separately from the receivers (E1-E4) and/or the receivers (E1-E4) transmit their signals through a common line (52) separate from the lasers. All the lasers (L1-L4) are controlled by signals through a common line (42), and all the receivers (E1-E4) transmit their signals through a common and separate line (52). The signals are coded to control a laser and the transmitted signals from a receiver. T laser or receiver is controlled through a timing pulse signal, where the control signals for the separate lasers or receivers ar coded in a set time sequence in the timing pulse signal. At the end of the common line, the timing pulse signal is passed to an active distribution unit, to be passed to the different lasers (L1-L4). The lasers (L1-L4) and/or receivers (E1-E4) are switched series. Their control and/or transmitted signals each pass through delay or signal processing units for signal modification. Two lasers can be controlled through one line, and two further lasers through a second line, with a timed cycle alternation between two lines. The receivers, in pairs, pass their transmitted signals through two lines with a common line for each pair. The laser beam, at each laser, is divided optically into at least two part-beams. In an assembly with two lasers, each delivering a laser to two facing receivers, the lasers are at different gaps from the band of warps.
