The Gap Quickset function is not the same as a Teach function--it simply saves the operator the extra key presses of aligning the setup indicator. A typical teach function involves moving multiple labels through the sensor while an analytical algorithm determines the best settings for the device. However, without manual setup abilities, a poorly functioning teach cycle leaves an operator with an inoperative or unreliable machine and no ability to do anything about it.  The Gap Quickset functions differently, leaving the operator in control.

While not a teach function, the new Gap Quickset does save the operator a little time by automatically adjusting for the gap that is currently in the sensor, saving the user a few button clicks. If the operator thinks the setting can be improved, he or she can just make a small adjustment with a few clicks until satisfied.

The LRD8200 was designed in response to the packaging industry’s demand for a sensor that works with the largest possible range of materials.
