Katlax - Photoelectric Sensors
Photoelectric Sensors are indispensable components of modern automated production processes. KATLAX combines precision optics with electronics and rugged housing to provide versatile reflex and through beam sensors. These sensors are designed for applications involving Non-contact detection for measuring, counting and positioning.
Through Beam Types
These switches offer sensing range upto 5M. Emitter and Receiver are in separate housings facing each other with their optical axes matched. Sensor switches whenever light beam is interrupted.
Switching point independent of surface nature. Narrow effective beam results in better repeatability Largest sensing ranges.
Monitoring doors and gates. Counting and monitoring objects over large distances.
These are available in two types.
( a ) Diffused Beam Reflex Sensor
Emitter and Receiver are in same housing. Sensing range upto 0.2m is provided. Emitter sends beam of pulsed infrared light . Only small portion of light diffused by object in all directions is sensed, which switches the sensor.
Sensing range depends largely on reflective properties of target. Suitable for distinguishing between black and white targets. Positioning and monitoring with only one active sensor.
Distinguishing and sorting of objects according to their volumes and degree of reflection.
( b ) Retro reflective Reflex Sensor
With Emitter and Receiver in same housing, light reflected by triple prism reflector or reflecting Tape opposite to sensor is sensed. Sensor switches when light beam is interrupted.
Large sensing range. Mat finished surfaces are sensed independent of surface properties.
Height detection of stacked objects. Control of randomly positioned objects on conveyor.
