Die Protection Sensors

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, and electro-mechanical probe style 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.

    • 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).
    • Three general purpose sensor for detecting feed, transfer, cam return, etc.:
      • 8 mm sensor: 0.060 in. (1.5 mm) range (M8 threaded body).
      • 12 mm sensor: 0.100 in. (2.5 mm) range (M12 threaded body)
