Norstat now offers an Ultrasonic Fork Sensor that is ideal for the detection of transparent labels or opaque label materials making it a suitable solution for packaging or labeling applications where the detection of the label compared to the carrier material is crucial.
Ultrasonic sensing is one of the best ways to detect clear objects with high reliability and the FC8 Ultrasonic Sensor can detect objects regardless of the color, surface or material. Where other optical technologies may fail, the FC8 ultrasonic sensor is a reliable solution for label detection that can be used in any lighting environment. The FC8 has a robust aluminum housing with a 3-mm-width slit detection and a 69-mm-depth slit detection and is available in teach-in versions with dynamic and remote teach.
The FC8 connects via a M8, 4 pin plug for easy set up and maintenance. Maximum switching frequency is 1,500 Hz and output can be either PNP digital, NPN digital or LO/DO output selectable with remote teach. Normal sensing distance is 3 mm with a 2 mm minimum distance between labels and a maximum flow rate of 180 m/min. The FC8 can operate in temperatures ranging from +5° C to +55° C and carries a protection rating of IP65. Contact Norstat for pricing and availability.
