Why Photoelectric Sensors Fit a Variety of Needs
Featured Product from Locon Sensor Systems, Inc.
At Locon Sensor Systems, we specialize in providing different sensing technologies to best suit your unique application needs – a small space, high-temp, or difficult environmental conditions.
Photoelectric sensors can be used in a variety of applications. This technology involves cooperation between a sender and receiver. The sender emits an infrared beam targeted towards the receiver. Depending on output and target detection parameters, the status of the beam will indicate presence or absence of the target. The sensor can be incorporated into your PLC to trigger the desired prompt, resulting in an alert or a change in the application’s process.
Application needs including sensing distance and switching speed, along with the size, shape, and material composition of the target will determine which photoelectric sensor is the best fit for your project. Locon Sensor Systems supplies cylindrical and rectangular sensors that provide different angles and infrared beam capabilities. Fiber optic cable accessories to be used in conjunction with the photoelectric sensors are available for hard to fit, or high-temp areas.
