Optical proximity sensors Fig. 6.5.10: Distinguishing between one or two layers of fabrics by means of a through-beam sensor with fibre-optic cable One layer of fabric lets through more light than two, which leads to switching with an appropriate proximity sensor setting. Fig. 6.5.11: Checking of threads Threaded screws reflect sufficient diffused light to make the receiver switch. If the surface is smooth, the emitted light beam is deflected away from the sensor. © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 99 6.
