The RS-5 Plus is a programmable electronic controller designed to control an L Sealer or Combination Shrink System. The RS-5 Plus is setup to control several machine configurations through the digital keypad. The controller can be configured to control either impulse or hot knife L Sealers equipped with or without a shrink tunnel.
The RS-5 Plus controls: Seal Time, Side & Front Seal Temp, Seal Conveyor Run Time, Seal Conveyor Speed, Tunnel Conveyor Speed, Tunnel Temperature, Cycle Count, and Heated Hole Punch.

If the first seal is not satisfactory, wait five (5) minutes, then increase seal control setting to a higher level.
Seal another package, if the seal is not satisfactory then, repeat step five until a satisfactory seal is achieved.
Now, seal packages at a normal production rate and then if the seal deteriorates, stop packaging for five (5) minutes and then increase trim setting one-quarter of a digit.
Repeat step 7 until all your seals are consistent.
NOTE: Trim control normally should not be set any higher than eight (8) for routine packaging. If a higher setting appears to be required, repeat step two increasing the seal setting. Balance between seal and trim control is essential for consistent seal performance.
TROUBLESHOOTING: If first package has poor seals, adjust seal control to the first seal satisfaction. If that is not possible, the problem can be isolated to seal arm pressure, seal pad or seal wire condition.
