Dynamic Pressure Monitoring of Objects in Vibrating Spiral Conveyors Via Reflex Sensors with Background Suppression and IO-Link
In vibrating spiral conveyors, screws, rivets or bolts are separated via a spiral using vibration and transported away. In order to keep the dynamic pressure on the transfer station at the top end of the spiral to a minimum, the presence of the objects is monitored from above with a reflex sensor with background suppression. The response and fall time can be individually configured via the integrated IO-Link interface to pre-set necessary adjustments due to the vibration and different objects. This guarantees that the objects are reliably detected.
