Unformatted text preview: evices take up too much room. Another application, where the use of fibre-optic cable adaptors is of advantage, is in areas with explosion hazard. With the use of fibre-optic cables the position of small objects can be detected with high accuracy. Fig. 6.5.1: Through-beam sensor with fibre-optic cables (principle) By using two separate fibre-optic cables it is possible to construct a through-beam sensor. Because of their handling flexibility, these can be used universally. Fig. 6.5.2: Diffuse sensor with fibre-optic cables (principle) Emitter and receiver fibre-optic cables are incorporated in sensor head. 92 © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 6.

This makes possible an accurate lateral approach, even with small objec...
