Operating principle of reflectors
The function of reflectors on their surfaces is to refract the light so that it is reflected back in the original direction or towards the light source. In principle, they have a similar effect to conventional mirrors, but they work much more precisely.
Areas of application for reflectors
Thanks to their precise mode of operation, reflectors are suitable for industrial use in automation technology. They are used in particular for the correct operation of photoelectric sensors or more precisely retro-reflective sensors and laser sensors. This is the only way to ensure millimeter and second-precise control in the following areas, for example:
- Object detection in the automotive, wood, paper, cement industry
- Position detection in handling, packaging, conveyor technology
- Positioning in steel processing
Due to the variety of areas of application, reflectors in connection with the retro-reflective sensors and laser sensors are of great importance in almost every manufacturing or processing company.
