The XUBT1, is a ready-to-use sensor that is easy to install and well-suited for use in conveying applications as well as flow and jamming detection in food and beverage packaging. The 18mm diameter sensor operates in conjunction with a reflector and is easily mounted on the production line using a bracket. A very simple-to-use teach mode is incorporated in the sensor and a single press on the "Teach" button optimizes the detection parameters, while 3 LEDs simplify maintenance.
