As contactless measurement devices, photoelectric distance sensors are suitable for numerous areas of application. Different operating principles are available, depending on the distance to be measured. The specialists at Contrinex use a laser triangulation method for highly accurate distance measurement at short ranges, while at long ranges they prefer the optical time-of-flight (TOF) method. These…Details

Rugged Washdown Inductive Sensors Monitor Position of Control Valves During Dairy-Product Processing
During manufacture of dairy products, raw milk travels between successive processes through stainless-steel pipework. Rotary-shaft control valves maintain process sequences correctly, ensuring that no cross-contamination occurs during CIP cleaning after each batch is completed. Robust washdown inductive sensors, mounted on existing rotary actuators, monitor control-valve status around the clock, providing real-time positional feedback to a…Details
