Baumer's FKDK 14
contrast sensors are for print mark detection and are useful in packaging and
printing machines. Utilizing white light as the light source, the FKDK 14
series can detect print marks of all colors, even with slight contrast to the
background. Optimized for high throughput speed, the new contrast sensor
offers a response time down to 50 µ. This allows short throughput times to be
achieved. The contrast sensor is very compact and can be integrated into any
machine. The 2-point teach-in procedure can also be conducted during process.
The switching status is indicated with an LED, which is
visible through the transparent housing base of the contrast scanner.
The FKDK 14 is suited for applications in packaging and graphic
machinery. Providing a solution for print mark or printing plate detection, the
FKDK 14 diffuse contrast sensor combines short response time and a compact
housing with the white light source.
