Stack Height Monitoring on Packaging Magazines with Ultrasonic Distance Sensor
Different colored cartons in packaging systems are stacked on top of each other in magazines before being unfolded and filled in downstream processes. In order to ensure a continuous material supply, the stacking height of the magazine is checked by an ultrasonic distance sensor. This sensor records the measured values either continuously via IO-Link or with two switching points so that the magazine can be refilled in good time. Thanks to the wide sonic cone, recesses, gaps or punches have no influence on object sensing.
