Potential Applications


  • Bottle Cap Inspection
    Bottle Cap Inspection After bottles are filled and capped, they are conveyed under a diffuse sensor at close range, before they are packed in cartons. The diffuse sensor, operating in fixed-field mode, detects missing or misaligned caps—regardless of color—and triggers the line to reject uncapped bottles.

    Because the sensor uses fixed-field mode, it responds when a cap is not at the exact distance from the sensor that it should be.

We carry thousands of products from dozens of leading manufacturers. Here are some examples:

  • Banner TM18 Photoelectric Sensor
    Banner TM18 Photoelectric Sensor This compact photoelectric sensor is suitable for heavy duty service. The all-metal (nickel-plated die cast zinc), mechanically robust construction is ideal on conveyors or on machines in washdown environments and IP69K applications. The housing is designed with an 18mm threaded barrel mount and integral metal QD.

  • Turck Q-Track Linear Position Sensors
    Turck Q-Track Linear Position Sensors TURCK's Q-track inductive sensor operation is based on the RLC resistance inductance capacitance principle that incorporate precisely manufactured printed emitter and receiver coil systems. The emitter coils are activated with a high frequency AC field and produce an inductive RLC circuit with the positioning element. The element is inductively coupled with the receiver coils, which are arranged so different voltages are induced in the coils, depending on the position of the actuator. The voltages serve as a measure for the sensor signal. Q-track sensors deliver maximum measuring spans, with minimal blind zone and high resistance to EMI/RFI noise interference. The Q-track sensors available are three housing styles Q14, Q17L and Q25 with measuring lengths from 25mm to 1,000mm. In addition, TURCK offers a rotary QR14 package with 360 degree rotational feedback.
