Detects Non-woven Textiles

Case Number 51

last update: October 22, 2009

This application uses a Fiber Sensor with active threshold control (ATC).
This Digital Photoelectric Sensor with ATC detects non-woven textiles in an area filled with airborne paper dust. ATC automatically corrects the threshold of the Sensor to match changes in the light intensity caused by dirt.


You had to often adjust the threshold of the fiber amplifier according to the contamination of the sensor.

Benefit / Efficiency

Active threshold control automatically corrects the threshold to match reductions in light intensity caused by dirt, which enables stable detection over extended periods of time.
