Characteristics and functionalities of light barriers

Light barriers work based on the transmitted light principle. Transmitter and recipient are placed opposite from each other. In the initial state the light is transmitted from the emitter to the receiver und forms the name-giving light barrier. Enters an object into the measuring field, the light barrier is disrupted and triggers the switching process. High-performance light barriers made by Sensorik Austria are hard-wearing and can be deployed in demanding applications and rough environments. Aligning the light barrier is easy and doesn’t require optical aids. Even an offset of several degrees still ensures a reliable functionality.

Wide product range for versatile applications

Sensorik Austria provides you with different sensors. Our compact light barriers of the ELS-series can be used in any industrial sector and are flexible in its operational area. For very rough environments as in the paper manufacturing industry we recommend the FSP30 products.

For applications where the light beam is not disrupted during the operational state we offer models with an additional alarm output to monitor pollution of the sensor optic! Fiber optical light barriers are foremostly suitable when used in high temperatures or in areas difficult to access. In this case, the light barrier will be built up by one of our high-performance photo sensors plus a two-armed fiber optic cable.
