Area monitoring fiber sensor heads
When mountingspace is crucial or the objects are very small, the area monitoring
fibers provide a reliable object detection even when the object position varies within the monitored range.
In combination with the window monitoring function or the serial transmission of the received light level values of the fiber amplifiers, simple height comparison or measuring applications can be realized.
• Area monitoringup to 70 mm height
• Multi-beam sensor with 4 separate heads for flexible detection points
• Standard or high flex fibers

The two outputs ofthe E3NX-FA can be used to detect two diﬀerent light levels
Incombination with the twin output function ofthe E3NX-FA ampliﬁer, the diﬀuse reﬂective area monitoring ﬁbers can detect very small objects (e.g. needles) and a second state (e.g cover present). The area beam compensates for position variations at high speed.
