Autowide Sensor AWE280A


This optical sensor for the detection of the position of(non-transparent) webs has a wide field of view (280 mm) so there is no need to move the sensor to the web end position every time the web width changes.

●Both EPC and CPC can be performed using a single AWE280A.
●It can also detect webs made of fabric or other lighttransmitting material.
●It can be also used in environments where there is slight amount of dust or occasional drops of water.(Drip-proof finish of IP54 Standard equivalence)
●If the detection sensitivity declines, a warning signal will be output.
●The power-saving design means that the power supply box (PR15X) that was formerly required when two AWE280 sensors were used, is now no longer required.
