Pepperl+Fuchs: Compact luminescence sensors

July 26, 2016
DK50-UV luminescence sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs provide an easy, reliable way to perform error checking, sorting, measuring, and positioning materials that blend into a background or are invisible.

Sensors detect fluorescent chalk marks, clear glue, tamper-proof seals, and other marks that regular contrast sensors cannot, even on irregular backgrounds, and deliver a sensing range of 600 mm in a space-saving housing that is 50% smaller than previous generations. A light spot with a small focal point allows users to detect small parts such O-rings, pinpoint leaks, and invisible markings down to 2.2 mm diameter targets. These sensors are UL and cUL listed.
