Cylindrical Sensors Offer Strength

Countapulse Controls reports that the Leuze cylindrical sensors offer a higher mechanical strength than the standard sensors. Engineered for particularly arduous conditions, the Leuze 328 series sensor is based on the optical platform of the well-known standard Leuze 318B series, however this new device features a metal sleeve in the housing.

The operational sensors available in the new Leuze cylindrical series, which range from throughbeam photoelectric sensors to retro-reflective photoelectric sensors to light scanners with sensitivity adjustment via teach button, are designed with the option of either a cable or plug connection. An adjustable retro-reflective photoelectric sensor model with a polarisation filter is also available for particularly tricky applications.

With ranges of up to 15 metres (throughbeam photoelectric sensors), six metres (retro-reflective photoelectric sensors) and one metre (light scanners), the new Leuze cylindrical sensors are ideally suited to a variety of applications for object detection in materials handling and packaging technology.

The cylindrical sensors are especially popular for integration into constricted production facilities as well as into assemblies in transport systems or other machinery. In many production processes and internal transport systems, these optical sensors are used for the detection of objects and thereby control processes or partial steps. The highly visible light spot facilitates alignment and two antivalent outputs expand the application options.

The quality engineered and manufactured range of Leuze sensors is available from Countapulse Controls who has been providing sensing solutions to business across southern Africa for more than forty years. This Johannesburg based company also operates a technical hotline to ensure that customers have ready access to relevant applications and operational information.
