Light-band sensors for edge detection, object counting - STM Sensors

Feb. 18, 2010
The GLSBS is the latest addition to the GLS line of fork sensors.
The GLSBS is the latest addition to the GLS line of fork sensors. When used with V10 analog amplifiers, the 30-mm homogeneous light band creates an accurate position-measurement system for web-guidance applications. When used in combination with the V10-H amplifier, the GLSBS acts as a low-cost alternative to RLS frame sensors for high-speed object counting.STM Sensors, 6540 W.
