In many automation and assembly technology applications, standard versions of optical sensors cannot be used, due to adverse ambient conditions such as high temperatures, small installation spaces or restricted access. For these tasks, fibre optic sensors as a specific solution are ideal for these applications which the evaluation electronics (amplifier) and the optoelectronic components (fibre optic) are arranged separately.
The fibre optic sensors consist of a transmitter and receiver for infrared or ultraviolet light, with subsequent signal processing. A high-quality glass fibre optic provides precision light transmission according to the principle of total reflection.
