Die Protection Sensors and Connection Interfaces

Production Resources provides complete die protection sensor and control solutions designed to integrate into your Wintriss or other die protection control systems. We carry a full line of retro-reflective, diffuse reflective, through-beam, photoelectric fork, and inductive proximity sensors.

 

Retroreflective Sensors

Retroreflective Sensors

Retroreflective Sensors

Retroreflective sensors that use a reflective target (included) to establish a sensing beam. The CX-29 sensor has a 10 ft (3.05 m) maximum sensing range. When installed with the sensor and reflector less than 10 ft (3.05 m) apart, the unused range (also called the "excess gain") provides extra power to enable the sensor to shine right through lubricant and other contaminants.

The sensor and reflector feature built-in polarizing filters to allow the sensor to detect even very reflective parts.

 

Through-Beam Photosensors

Through-Beam Photosensors

Through-Beam Photosensors

Through-Beam Photosensor is a general-purpose photosensor with separate emitter and receiver. The CX-21 has a long range, 33 ft (11.48 m). When this sensor is installed with the emitter and receiver less than 33 ft (11.48 m) apart, the unused range (also called the "excess gain") provides enough power to enable the sensor to shine right through lubricant and other contaminants.

The CX-21 has a switch to select light-on or dark-on operating mode. Use the dark-on (beam break) mode for detecting part or slug ejection, or short feed. Use the light-on (beam make) mode for detecting a hole in the strip. The CX-21 uses infrared light.

 

Optical Convergent Sensors

Optical Convergent Sensors

Optical Convergent Sensors

Optical Convergent Sensors are reflective photo-sensors with the emitter and receiver in the same housing. The MQ-W20 has three beams (one emitter and two receivers), and uses triangulation to set a precise actuation point (focal area) at an adjustable distance in front of the sensor.

Any object outside of the focal area, whether it is closer or more distant, is ignored. The MQ-20W features a rugged, die-cast metal housing, with a detecting range of 1 to 8 in. (25.4 to 203.2 mm).

 

Photoelectric Fork Sensors

Photoelectric Fork Sensors

Photoelectric Fork Sensors

A Photoelectric Fork Sensor is a through-beam photosensor with a prealigned emitter and receiver permanently housed in a U-shaped cast metal case Used primarily for short-feed detection, the RT-610-50 is typically installed at the end of the die to detect either a hole or the edge of the strip.

Self Contained Proximity Sensors

  • 3 mm sensor: 0.020 in. (0.6 mm) range (non-threaded body) This sensor is precise enough to detect stripper position at BDC to within 0.001 in. (0.025 mm), or detect holes as small as 0.020 in. (0.51 mm).

Electro-Mechanical Grounding Style Sensors

DMO(2)5-1A Buckling Sensors

DMO(2)5-1A Buckling Sensors

DMO(2)5-1A Buckling Sensors
This sensor is used with coil fed presses and is used to detect misfeeds caused by the material buckling as the press feed advances material into the die. The sensor mounts between the feed and the die. The arms are adjustable which determines the amount of buckle tolerated. A wire assembly is provided that connects to a Wintriss die protection control or sensor interface and is commonly connected to a “yellow” normally open sensor input. The sensor causes a fault when the coil stock provides a path to ground through either of the probe arms.

 

DF05 End of Material Sensor

DF05 End of Material Sensor

DF05 End of Material Sensor
This sensor is used with coil fed press lines and is used to detect the end of the coil and send a stop signal to a Wintriss die protection control before the tail of the coil enters a straightener or feeder. The sensor is installed such that the flag rides on the stock keeping it away from the lower post. When the material runs out and the flag drops the sensor “grounds”. A wire assembly is included and the sensor is normally connected as a “yellow” normally open input to the control.

 

DB/M05 Short Feed Sensor

DB/M05 Short Feed Sensor

DB/M05 Short Feed Sensor
This spring set grounding sensor is used to detect short feeds in coil fed operations. It is mounted at the end of the die such that material will make contact in the fully fed position. The sensor is normally used with a Wintriss die protection control to provide a “green” cyclic input. The sensor may be used in a horizontal position with the round end facing the material target or in a vertical position with the round end removed and the spring facing up. A wire assembly is included.

 

Wintriss Probes

Wintriss Probes

Wintriss Probes

 

Electro-mechanical spring tip probes are designed for use with Wintriss die protection controls or equivalent systems. The probes are supplied with a wire assembly that connects to the die protection control or sensor interface. The DWI and DWM are “grounding” sensors and turn on when the probe tip finds electrical ground through the part. These sensors are commonly used as a “green” cyclic input to a die protection control indicating a part is in place or has been ejected. The DWM and SWG series is available with a 3” or 6” long body.

The SWG is a switch probe for use where the target piece part cannot provide a path to ground and must have the probe body grounded to work. When the SWG probe tip is moved internal contacts contact the probe body and send a signal to the control.
