Detection, measurement, and positioning of the solar glass substrate

The AL20 array sensor outputs a ready-to-use standard analog signal (either 4–20 mA or 0–10 V). Local controllers can quickly realign modules with unprecedented accuracy without the overhead of central data processing. The OD Precision laser short range distance sensor reports the thickness and bow of the glass, rejecting defective panels prior to the sensitive lamination process. Edge detection of glass is a specialty of the W4F photoelectric proximity sensor. It can precisely detect the leading edge, ignoring ambient light thanks to superior background suppression.
