With the switching sensor with measurement core technology, different stack heights are easily detected. In this case, the sensor is mounted above a conveyor belt and senses down into passing containers. Using Multi Pixel Technology, it detects the different stack heights of the products inside. If, for instance, a vacuum pad successively removes two of these contained products, the sensor detects it based on the previously configured switch points. The application image to the right illustrates this function principle. The white object in the background represents the different stack heights.
The advantage is obvious: In applications where two sensors were required, the switching sensor with measurement core technology now suffices. Thus, with the R100 and R101 series, users make processes more efficient and safe while reducing costs in acquisition and operation.
