SOEG-RT diffuse light sensors, also known as energy light sensors, have the transmitter and receiver in the same housing. The emitted light beam is reflected directly from the object onto the receiver. The intensity of the reflected light is then evaluated.
SOEG-RS... diffuse light barriers also have the transmitter and receiver in the same housing. The emitted light is reflected back to the receiver by a SOEZ reflector.
An object located between the sensor and the reflector interrupts the light beam and is thus detected.
SOEG-S/E through-beam sensors.Here the transmitter (S) and receiver (E) are accommodated in different housings, which must be installed opposite one another. Any object that interrupts the light beam between the transmitter and receiver is detected. This is one of the most reliable principles in harsh environmental conditions.
SOEG-L are fiber optic intensifiers. Depending on the type of fiber optic cable, these sensors can detect different objects as diffuse sensors or through-beam sensors. They are used, for example, in confined installation conditions.
The functional principle of the SOEC-RT color sensor is based on the use of only one light source (LED, white). Colors can be recognized in the range 12 – 32 mm. The color to be detected is simply set using the teach-in method. The color sensor can detect up to three different colors (3 channels).
SOEG-L are fiber optic intensifiers for H-rails. Depending on the type of fiber optic cable, these sensors can detect different objects as diffuse sensors or through-beam sensors.
Fork light barriers detect objects according to the functional principle of through-beam sensors. Transmitter and receiver as well as the entire electronics are accommodated in one housing. This makes installation and adjustment much faster and easier. There are fork gaps from 30 to 120 mm.
These are fiber-optic cables with different features – e.g. longer range, high temperature, precision, high flexibility, coaxial cable, etc.
Reflectors are used for diffuse light sensors in various sizes and designs.
