The Eagle Eye AA is capable to detect especially structural material boundaries in metals. These might be for example air gaps between butt joins or stacked sheets. Even metallic transitions with different types of metals are detected reliably.
In the detection of ferromagnetic materials the sensor indicates a very significant signal which is affected only by the number of material bounderies. Applications solvable only with complex systems become so far possible with this sensor type.
The analog sensor signal output can be processed rapidly with a performant PLC. The universal control unit XA100-S may be used for a simple and quick integration in an existing system. The control unit provides switching signals for norm-, under- and over size limits.
