Analysis Equipment C

Positioning of workpiece transfer mechanism


  • ・To detect and position the origin to control the transfer mechanism of the analysis sample.

Issues & Requests

  • ・Need a slot type sensor that can be mounted on three axes to be used for controlling various mechanisms and other equipment.
  • ・Want a sensor that prevents the connector from being disconnected due to shock upon the start and/or stop of the mechanism.


  • ・Adopted model:
    Screw-mount connector type Photomicrosensor (photointerrupter)
  • ・This sensor is available in a lineup of products that can be mounted in each of the X, Y, and Z axis directions. The power supply voltage is available in 5V and 12V.
  • ・The connector with lock allows for equipment with vibration and shock. It is small but can be mounted with M3 screws as well, which are standard components.
