Switching from transverse to lengthwise transport

The PowerProx MultiTask photoelectric sensor detects transverse transport when switching from transverse to lengthwise transport of a board. The conveyor belt units are then extended, as they are needed to transfer the board from transverse to lengthwise transport. The PowerProx MultiTask photoelectric sensor therefore enables precise edge detection at a large detection angle.
