Optical sensors with light line and light band for reliable detection of printed circuit boards


When optical detection using point-shaped light beams reaches its limits, the light line of the WT14-2 photoelectric sensor and the light band of the Reflex Array MultiTask photoelectric sensor will carry the day. Significant enlargement of the detection surface makes it possible to compensate above all for the openings of printed circuit boards that vary in size. In turn, this results in reliable presence detection. Continue reading
