The Testing station detects the various properties of the workpieces inserted into it. It differentiates workpieces with the aid of an optical and a capacitive sensor. A retro-reflective sensor monitors whether the operating space is free before the workpiece is raised via a linear cylinder. An analogue sensor measures the height of the workpiece. A linear cylinder guides correct workpieces via the upper air slide to the neighbouring station. Faulty workpieces are rejected via the lower air slide

Top topic: Sensors

The Testing station employs all basic types of industrial sensors in typical applications: optical and capacitive proximity sensors and optical retro-reflective sensors. These are supplemented by various cylinder limit switches (inductive, magnetic).

Option: Analogue value processing

An analogue sensor detects the height of the workpiece, which is raised from below by a linear cylinder and pressed against the measuring device. A comparator evaluates the sensor signal and passes this on as a digital signal. The analogue signal is also available at a separate terminal – allowing connection to the simulation box or a PLC with an analogue module.
