Product description

The bks ultrasonic edge sensor is a fork sensor for scanning the edges of sound-impermeable materials such as foil or paper. This is why the bks is ideally suited for the web control of highly transparent foils, light-sensitive materials, materials with greatly varying transparency and paper subject to high paper dust loads. The fork's lower leg is equipped with an ultrasonic sensor which cyclically emits short sound impulses, which are detected by the ultrasonic receiver arranged in the upper fork leg. Material immersing into the fork covers this sound path and thus attenuates the receive signal in dependence of the coverage, which is evaluated by the internal electronics. An analogue signal is output in dependence of the coverage degree.

Via the teach-in button on the edge sensor's top, the zero position of the edge to be controlled is set.

The bks edge sensor has a fork width of 30 mm and a fork depth of 33 mm. Other fork widths and depths are available upon request. The housing side is equipped with two consistent bores for the edge sensor's mounting. The electrical connection is established via an M12 circular connector.

Three LEDs indicate the position of the web material inside the fork. For the application of light-sensitive materials, the LEDs can also be switched off.

The bks is pre-set and immediately ready for operation. Optionally, it can also be comprehensively parameterised with the help of the LinkControl adapter LCA-2 and LinkControl software.
