CAPTRON fork light barriers with laser work based on the function principle of one-way light barriers. The transmitter and receiver are located in a robust metal housing with a fixed position and setting. This ensures simple, reproducible assembly.
A very high switching frequency of 10 kHz enables extremely precise and dependable detection of both metallic and non-metallic objects. Even the smallest of parts measuring only 0.05 mm moving at high speeds can be reliably detected thanks to the high resolution. The output contacts between the N/C and N/O contacts of the laser fork light barriers can be switched. The sensitivity can be adjusted using an adjustment screw.
LASER LIGHT BARRIERS WITH INTEGRATED AIR SYSTEM
CAPTRON laser light barriers with integrated air system are extremely resistant to dirt. Outflowing air prevents dust and dirt from collecting on the transmitter and receiver.
This makes the system ideal for industrial applications with high levels of contamination, such as the food industry, paper industry, mixing and metering systems, and many others.
