Detection of the wooden board to activate the conveyor roller

The PowerProx MultiTask photoelectric sensor reliably recognizes wooden boards with different surface properties and dimensions during transverse transport. The timely control of the conveyor roller during lengthwise transport enables the switch from transverse to lengthwise transport and makes it possible for boards to be singulated and fed into the planing machine in an even cycle.
