The Reflector R reflects a luminous ray back towards the source which emitted it. It thus allows the creation of a reflecting optical barrier with V3 or V5 optical barriers.
DELTA offers a wide range of reflectors to meet the different application requirements :
A prism reflector reflects light back along the same axis as the emitting light, independent of the angle of emission. The angle of emission must not, however, exceed 15°.
The maximum allowable temperature depends on the type of prism. The attachment of a water cooled base allows for use in higher ambient temperatures.
Warning : A plastic multi-prism reflector may be deformed by intense infrared radiation, even at low ambient temperatures. It is therefore advisable not to place a plastic reflector in close proximity to a strong IR source (e.g. hot product, furnace).
The reflectors R are mounted on a metal base with either :
