SIEMENS Automation & Drives has introduced the 3RG62 ultrasonic through beam proximity switch, available from Ramelec .
Now, photoelectric reflex sensors that are misted, dirty or sensitive to clear glass are a thing of the past in the beverage industry.
The 3RG62 using sonar through beam technology can reliably count bottles or cans on conveyor systems, no matter how close together they are.
The 200Hz units are proven in systems counting more than 120,000 bottles an hour, completely independent of target colours or rising water vapours.
Delivery options include pre-cabled or M12 connection and the units are resistant to diluted acids and bases contained in cleaning chemicals.
