Detecting workpiece carriers and checking presence of parts

The IQ06 and IQ10 inductive proximity sensors monitor workpiece carriers along the production line and signal the presence of a carrier to the pick-and-place robot. The ASIC technology from SICK ensures high accuracy of the effective sensing range. The large sensing range and flexible mounting options allow for significant flexibility in terms of machine design. Using an output signal switching device, the PowerProx MultiTask photoelectric sensor (WTT12) can signal the presence of parts on the workpiece carrier to the robot controller, even from greater distances.
