#SortIT Troubleshooting Wear-out Origin Sensors on V-Series Vinyl Cutter and How to Repair Them
Sensors dictate the direction in which the belt will move
Vinyl Cutters contain sensors that are set close to the belt spindle. These rule -out the direction in which the belt must move in.
A steel bracket sets off the sensor
When the carriage gets to the end of its run, a steel bracket that can be found at the end of the belt sets off the sensor which in turn brings about a change in the direction that the belt moves. There are two sensors in a vinyl cutter and this is due to the fact that the belt has to move in two directions.
The sensors wear out over a period of time and need to be replaced
Over time the sensors deteriorate and therefore do not indicate the need for change in direction. Therefore, the belt moves in the same direction even if it holds out the end of the carriage way.
As soon as this happens, sensors need to be restored. The sensors set up in the cutter are the same, the difference can be found in the motherboard connection. Both sensors vary in size. This difference exists in order to ensure that the sensors are plugged right into the right input socket.
The left-hand sensor is referred to as the limit sensor and the right-hand sensor- the origin sensor. You need to restore both sensors in this instance.
Also, you can also make use of the machine without the sensors even though it will make a lot of noise while you operate on it. Remove both sensors from the input socket and then carry on using it.
