The sensor V5 works in association with a reflector R (cf. literature E3990).
¨Features and benefits:
Examples of applications¨¨
Tail detection for on fly length measurement¨¨
Slab detection - Charging of reheat furnace
¨The Laser Barrier V5 can be used for all detection applications of cold product in the Steel industry.
The Laser Barrier V5 consists of :¨¨
The visible and modulated beam emitted by the laser diode is reflected back by a prism reflector placed opposite to the sensor, then detected by the photodiode which outputs a signal to the processing electronics. Product presence is determined depending on whether the beam is blocked or not. Beam modulation, special optical filter and automatic correction make the sensor insensitive to ambient light.¨¨
The visible and bright laser beam makes setting up the Laser Barrier V5 easy and fast.
¨To align the sensor, the beam has to be aimed at the detection point. Then the reflector has to be positioned so as to centre the point of impact of the beam.
¨The detection accuracy (± 1.5 mm at 2 m, ± 5 mm at 6 m distance) can be increased by sensitivity potentiometer adjustment.
