Florence, Ky. – Balluff’s EdgeMaster family of photoelectric sensors is designed for the detection and monitoring of web or object edges. Skew, material shifts, object alignment, and web material drag or stretch are all typical problems facing today’s high speed automated equipment, forcing production levels to be less than optimal. EdgeMaster sensors help detect these problems to reduce or eliminate them, increasing the output and lessening product changeover time.
Available in a variety of package sizes, EdgeMaster sensors come in four types. The BAV MA series, with a fixed dual optical axis edge detection design, provides two independent discrete outputs to show edge position change. The BGL C series is a photo array sensor that gives proportional analog or dual discrete outputs based on the amount of light blocked by the edge of the material inside the sensors’ viewing area, with a resolution of 0.08mm. The BOL 27 sensor projects a 150mm line of light over an edge against a reflective tape to provide an analog and discrete output for accurate position feedback. Finally, the BGL 21 is ideal for contrast mark or label detection in high-speed web-based applications.
