Used in combination with Sencon’s range of Short Can Sensors, the BCM500 Bodymaker Control Module incorporates additional functions that support all of the fast control logic requirements of a bodymaker, including airstrip, dome jam and backstop. These functions are integrated with short can and tear-off detection to drive special high speed clutch outputs.

* These models are also available with an output pulse stretcher.
See Can on Mandrel and High Performance Sensors.

These sensors perform reliably on the majority of known carbide punches, provided the magnetic permeability of the punch material remains stable in working conditions. Factors such as temperature variation can affect magnetic properties.
