Production logistics get smart
Closing the circle - Sensor solutions in production logistics - even for the smallest spaces in production
The W12-3 small photoelectric sensor detects both objects and gaps between objects in material flows. With the help of Smart Sensor Solutions, time values can be determined precisely and transmitted via IO-Link. Where the conveying speed is known, the control calculates object lengths and gaps between objects. If an accurate value for the gap between the objects is not required, and only the information as to whether the gap is large enough is needed, the information can be completely processed in the sensor. In such cases only a switching output is required to output the information.
