Light Curtain Sensor
The ParCon ZADM 034I is an analog optical line sensor that projects a continuous 24-mm wide parallel beam to a reflector, permitting extremely fast and reliable edge and width detection to 1.0 mm. The mini light curtain sensor accurately measures both metallic and non-metallic objects to resolutions of 0.1 mm. With a measuring frequency greater than 1 kHz, the 24-mm parallel light beam allows the sensor to accurately measure object edges regardless of their location within the sensing field. Sized at just 67 x 34 x 16.6 mm, the ParCon is designed to mount quickly and easily into small space applications with no additional bracket required for the vertically or horizontally positioned reflector bar. Users can program the minimum object size using the sensor’s simple push button teach-in process.
