The liftplan for an electronic dobby can be made by using third party weaving software. Via a USB cable connection or a wireless connection (only Megado) the shaft selection will be sent to the dobby hooks. The pictures show the Louët Octado. The new Megado Dobby 2 interface provides new possibilities.
Process of preparation and weaving on an electronic dobby:
- Dobby liftplan: make a liftplan using weaving software or the built-in software of the Dobby 2 (Megado only). There are no limits in the length of the liftplan.
- The selection will be sent electronically to the solenoids. The solenoids will push the dobby hooks in selection mode.
- The next pick will be activated as soon as the weaving pedal is in the up-position. No further actions are required.
- You can easily change the direction of the liftplan.
