There are several hand held units on the market for this means of detection, but none that can be used as a part of an automated process. The solution is the UVX Tin-side sensor. This sensor reliably verifies the presence of the tin-side of float glass.
How the UVX Tin-side sensor works:
- The system consists of a Control Unit, Optical Unit, 24VDC power supply and interface cable.
- The Control Unit provides a display with a 00-99 range and access to set-up parameters and threshold adjustment.
- The output of the Control Unit is a discrete, NPN/PNP that indicates when the signal level exceeds the threshold setting which occurs when viewing the tin-side.
- The Control Unit may be mounted to provide easy access to the controls and the display.
