Operating principle of light barriers and diffuse reflection sensors

Photoelectric sensors can detect objects by interrupting or reflecting their own light beams. Therefore these sensors belong to the category of position sensors.

It is distinguished between light barriers as through-beam and retro-reflective as well as diffuse reflection sensors. Through-beam sensors transmit the light beam in only one direction. Therefore transmitter and receiver are incorporated in different housings, i.e. there is no reflection to the transmitter. As with retro-reflective sensors, transmitter and receiver are incorporated in one component. The transmitted light beam is reflected to the receiver by a reflector. As with diffuse reflection sensors, this principle is similar because again transmitter and receiver are in one housing. As opposed to the retro-reflective sensors, no reflector is needed for the reflection. Any object will do. Therefore the range of diffuse reflection sensors depends to a large extent on the object surface and the degree of reflection.

There are numerous applications for light barriers and diffuse reflection sensors such as:

  • Position detection in packaging, conveying and handling technology
  • Object recognition in the wood, paper, cement and automotive industries
  • Positioning in steel processing
  • Detection of vehicles in car wash plants and on gateways
