Production logistics get smart
Closing the circle - Sensor solutions in production logistics - even for the smallest spaces in production
The presence of conveyed items at different points on the singulation system must be checked to monitor the accumulation of these items and to control the upstream vibratory bowl feeder. Here, the rugged and easy-to-align WFL fork sensor detects whether or not the linear track is at full capacity. For applications with little available space, the W2S-2 miniature photoelectric sensor is the ideal choice. The photoelectric sensor's background suppression reduces faults. For metallic objects, the IH04 or IM05 inductive proximity sensors can alternatively be used to check for presence.
