Provides Long-distance Detection of Aluminum
Case Number 265
last update: November 6, 2009
This application uses a Pulse-response Proximity Sensor with a Built-in Amplifier.
This Pulse-response Proximity Sensor with a Built-in Amplifier enables a long distance detection for aluminum workpieces.
Conventional proximity sensors did not provide stable detection because of differences in workpiece materials. The detection distance of aluminum was 1/3 that of iron.
Benefit / Efficiency
Using a new pulse response method ensures up to twice the sensing distance as the conventional sensors. This represents a real innovation in the history of proximity sensors.
Aluminum and Iron Both Detectable from Long Distances
