Chip Component Mounter A

Sprocket rotation detection


  • ・To detect the rotation of the sprocket for the tape extrusion control of the tape feeder section.

Issues & Requests

  • ・Need a small sensor that can be built into the tape feeder section, which has a thickness limitation.
  • ・Want to simplify and downsize the substrate for sensor mounting.
  • ・Want to stabilize the soldering quality by surface mounting.


  • ・Adopted model:
    Photo IC output type Photomicrosensor (photointerrupter)
  • ・This sensor has a small case width of 5.1 mm (slot width: 2 mm) and can be integrated into the parts feeder section. As it is surface-mounted, there are no leads protruding from the back of the mounted board.
  • ・The photo IC output requires no space for subsequent circuits, simplifying circuit design.
