A-GAGE EZ-ARRAY Series

Overview

  • Applications include edge and center-guiding, loop tension control, hole sizing, parts counting and on-the-fly product sizing and profiling.
  • Closely spaced infrared beams detect objects as small as 5 mm wide; edge resolution is 2.5 mm.
  • Controller functionality is built into the receiver, so basic setup requires no controller, software, or PC.
  • Easy-to-use software is included for advanced configuration, using a PC.
  • Configuration options include 14 measurement modes, three scanning methods, two analog and two discrete outputs and a serial output.
  • Range is 4 meters.
  • Array heights range from 150 to 2400 mm.
