THE tried and tested Leuze electronic series 8 sensor range, available from Balluff-Leuze , has been extended to include the luminescence scanner LRT 8.
This compact scanner, measuring just 48 x 38 x 15mm, covers an extremely wide application range.
It is capable of recognising practically every shade of luminescence - from blue, colourless, yellow and yellow-green, through to red and orange.
It is even able to reliably pick up special luminescence types such as print marks on paper labels or objects with only weak luminescent properties.
Due to its divergent light spot geometry, luminescence scanner LRT 8 is easily able to detect small luminescent objects at long range and large ones at close range.
Its extremely fast response time of 0.33ms means reliable sensor functionality even for high-speed operations.
This sensor opens up whole new scope for innovative solutions to machine and plant manufacturers for the graphics, packaging and woodworking industries.
