Sensors detect, measure, analyze, and process various changes that occur on productions sites, such as changes in position, length, height, displacement, and appearance. They also contribute to predicting and preventing future events.
Photoelectric Sensors detect photo-optical workpieces. Valin provides many varieties of sensor, including diffuse-reflective, through-beam, retro-reflective, and distance-settable sensors, as well as sensors with either built-in or separate amplifiers.
Light Curtains and Area Sensors
Area Sensors are Multi-beam Through-beam Sensors used to sense wide areas. The detection width of the Sensor can be selected according to the application.
Proximity Sensors are available in models using high-frequency oscillation to detect ferrous and non-ferrous metal objects and in capacitive models to detect non-metal objects. Models are available with environment resistance, heat resistance, resistance to chemicals, and resistance to water.
Fiber Optic Sensors and Amplifiers
With these Separate-amplifier Sensors, the light from the Amplifier is transmitted through a fiber to enable detection in narrow places, other locations with limited access.
These Sensors can be used to measure distances and heights. A wide variety of models is available, including Laser Sensors, LED Sensors, Ultrasonic Sensors, Contact Sensors, Eddy Current Sensors, and more.
Ultrasonic waves are used to enable stable detection of transparent objects, such as transparent films, glass bottles, plastic bottles, and plate glass, using Through-beam or Reflective Sensors.White Paper: Choose the Correct Level Sensor
