R/IR Sensors Control Conveyor Flow

R/IR Sensors Control Conveyor Flow

The ZoneControl R/IR sensors target zero pressure-accumulation applications. Their unique design enables mounting them between rollers on conveyors where space is limited, making the sensors less susceptible to damage. The IP 67-rated R/IR sensors provide both mounting and system flexibility to help control product flow, prevent jams, and improve operational efficiency. Using M12 mounting connectors, users can daisy chain 50 zones in series, reducing reflector hardware and installation costs. The two variants, R and IR, include outputs for both electric and pneumatic driven rollers. The R sensors are available as standard sensors and feature an adjustable 900-mm proximity sensing range on a 5% black target, eliminating the need for a reflector. The IR sensors integrate logic and do not require a PLC or PC, eliminating I/O and commissioning time.
