Level monitoring via two switching points

The PowerProx MultiTask photoelectric sensor detects different levels in the vibratory bowl feeder using two switching points. This means that the PowerProx first issues a warning message when the measured value drops below a limit value and then outputs an error message to the machine controller when the vibratory bowl feeder is empty. This error message causes the machine to stop. As an alternative option, this monitoring task can also be handled by the UM30 ultrasonic sensor.
