Edge Detection for PCBs with Reflex Sensors with Red Light Line
When manufacturing PCBs for the electronics industry, the PCBs must be transported in soldering systems during the running process and their position reliably detected. However, these PCBs often have breakouts or are not always precisely rectangular. Reflex sensors with a red light line are used to reliably detect these objects. They detect the front edges of the PCBs on transfer stations despite the irregular object surface and shape.
