Original Press Release:

ParCon Mini Light Curtain Sensor Provides Accurate, High Speed Edge Control for Metallic or Non-Metallic Objects

Southington, Conn. -- April 18, 2006... Baumer Electric has introduced the ParCon ZADM 034I, an analog optical line sensor that projects a continuous 24 mm wide parallel beam to a reflector, permitting extremely fast and reliable edge and width detection to 1.0 mm. The mini light curtain sensor accurately measures both metallic and non-metallic objects to resolutions of 0.1 mm.

With a measuring frequency greater than 1 kHz, the 24 mm parallel light beam allows the sensor to accurately measure object edges regardless of their location within the sensing field. Sized at just 67 x 34 x 16.6 mm, the ParCon is designed to mount quickly and easily into small space applications with no additional bracket required for the vertically or horizontally positioned reflector bar. Users can program the minimum object size using the sensor's simple push button teach-in process.

This sensor can be used in a range of industrial processing applications including packaging, printed circuit board manufacturing, printing/graphics, materials handling, packaging, metalworking, medical device assembly, and textile processing. The ParCon analog mini light curtain sensor is ideal for detecting edges, controlling and sorting by width/height, controlling and positioning sheet materials, and monitoring parts for wear.
