Unformatted text preview: ecting objects cannot
be detected reliably at a small distance via the fibre-optic cable. This solution is
suitable for the detection of matt, dark (black) objects. Also, it should be noted that
compared to operating without a reflector, the switch output (and the LED) of the
proximity sensor is inverted compared to operating without a reflector. Exercise 6.10 Checking of bottles
The nominal switching distance of an inductive proximity sensor is 8 mm (for steel
S 235 JR). For aluminium, the switching distance is reduced to 4 mm. Due to variable
height h, an inductive proximity sensor cannot be considered as a solution. The
sealing caps can be detected by means of an optical diffuse sensor, whereby the
sensitivity of the proximity sensor must be set in such a way that it does not react to
the bottle necks. It is an essential requirement that the bottle positions on the
conveyor belt always remain within the sensing range of the proximity sensor. © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 265 16. Solutions 16....
