The DK50-UV series luminescence sensors has been released by Pepperl+Fuchs Inc. for error checking, sorting, measuring and positioning materials that blend into a background or that are invisible. The compact sensors detect inks, pigments, dyes, coatings and adhesives, even on irregular backgrounds, and have a sensing range of 600 mm. They feature up to four automatic teach modes and one manual one, a graphical eight-segment LED display that indicates luminescent signal strength, an output mode toggle for quick adjustments and an integral timer that enables slower controllers to react to sensor output. Applications include verifying the presence of tamperproof seals, aligning bottle sleeves to labels, sensing labels on cartons, measuring the amount of glue on a carton flap and confirming the presence of a packing slip in a carton.
