These Optical Sensors provide a compact, low-cost method to detect workpieces. Many models are available, including Slot-type Sensors (through-beam) for non-modulated or modulated light, Reflective Sensors, and Sensors with separate emitters and receivers.
The emitter and receiver are set in a U shape to enable easy handling.
Through-beam Sensors have separate emitters and receivers to enable setting them at the required distance.
With Slot-type Sensors, the emitter and receiver are set in a U shape to enable easy handling. With Reflective Sensors, light is shown on the workpiece and reflected light is detected.
Convergent Reflective Sensors detect workpieces that are only a specific distance from the Sensor. They can be effectively used when there are background objects.
With Reflective Sensors, light is shown on the workpiece and reflected light is detected.
With Retro-reflective Sensors, a Reflector is set and the Sensor detects whether light is reflected back from the Reflector. They are effective for precise, stable detection.
