The Contrinex DGI range of infrared light detection

Member submitted story | PLUS Automation Ltd

During the manufacture of mechanical assemblies for automotive production, an operator uses a manually operated machine to weld metal parts together. After welding, the operator drops the assembly in a transport bin ready for dispatch. As each assembly is placed in the bin, an infra-red light detection grid sensor detects its presence and confirms that the welding cycle has been completed correctly.

The Contrinex DGI range of infrared light detection grids are well-suited for this application, with the separate sender and receiver-units rugged one-piece aluminium-profile housings. Response times from 0.8 to 4.8 milliseconds which are faster than safety light-curtains and a choice of resolutions from 0.9 to 25mm dependent upon the size of the light grid, the DGI light detection grids range exceed the demanding customer specification for rapid response and reliable detection of the small parts.

Product Advantages

  • Fast – Response times from 0.8 to 4.8 milliseconds
  • Compact & robust – 40 x 20.5mm aluminium extruded housing
  • Exceptional resolution from 0.9mm
  • Choice of protected widths from 200mm to 2m
  • Long sensing range – Up to 8m
  • Fast, easy, low-cost installation with M12 plugs
