Sense presence of various printing forms
- ・For various printing forms, sense that the printing paper is in the predetermined position
Issues & Requests
- ・Want to stably detect various types of printing papers.
- ・Need a sensor detecting no background objects.
There are various types of printing papers available, for example, transparent or variously colors. If using a general sensor, sensitivity adjustment may be needed for each different colored form or it may detect the background when sensing a transparent sheet.
- ・Adopted model:
Light convergent reflective sensor B5W-LB2112-1
- ・This sensor is optically designed to detect objects with low reflectivity, such as transparent plastic and black. This is useful for detecting various types of printing paper (glossy, non-glossy, transparent, etc.).
- ・This sensor contributes to the downsizing of the equipment because there is no influence from background objects in the predetermined non-sensing range.
For details, refer to B5W-LB Series: Light Convergent Reflective Sensor User’s Manual.
