The switching signal reacts as long as the build-up is present. Dynamic sensors, in contrast, react to rapid changes in the emission strength received. Slow changes such as for instance as a result of gradual contamination or slowly occurring objects are not registered because the switching threshold in the receiver is continually adjusted. Dynamic sensors are often used as thread breakage monitors in the textile industry. The thread passes through the sensor. A thread breakage creates a slight, brief change in the light being passed and is detected. Breakages in the finest threads (e.g. up to 0.05 mm) can be detected. The minimum brightness variation can be adjusted. 250 © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP...
