The Glare sensor is specially designed to recognize and differentiate objects on the basis of their gloss in order to control production processes. The Glare sensor analyzes the spatial distribution of reflected light using Delta-S technology, which allows the sensor to determine the gloss level of flat object surfaces and to differentiate between objects of differing gloss levels. The measurement result is transmitted to the process controls either via two digital switching outputs or IO -Link.Several operating modes are available, making the Glare sensor perfectly suited to a range of different applications. The combination of intelligent signal evaluation algorithms, the multi-sensor arrangement and sensitivity adjustments ensure increased operational safety in industrial applications. The Glare’s IO -Link interface enables the sensor to be integrated into the machine controller, featuring automatic, process-oriented configuration and online diagnostics.
