Reflectors for photoelectric sensors
They are not only indispensable for the correct operation of photoelectric sensors in automation technology: Reflectors are used in various applications in industry. The parts do not differ in principle from reflectors for light as they are known in everyday life, for example with bicycles. Light hitting the reflector surface is refracted so that it is reflected back in the direction from where it came - the effect is similar to that of a mirror, only much more precise.
Applications of reflectors
In automation technology reflectors are above all required, as already mentioned, for photoelectric sensors. Here it has to be ensured that the reflector surfaces reflect the hitting light beam absolutely precisely to allow reliable function of the photoelectric sensor, by which for example production processes or conveyors can be controlled to the millimetre and second.
Reflectors are only used with retro-reflective sensors. They are widely used in industry and can be found in almost any producing or processing company.
