We supply an unmatched inventory of wire-management and sensor products at IBIS Electro-Products Corp., including items by Dietz Sensortechnik. Dietz produces a broad lineup of inductive ring sensors, appreciated for their easy installation, fast response time, high resolution, and adjustable pulse lengths. They are built for reliable detection of small metallic parts in the middle of a ring, which makes them ideal for numerous applications.
Dietz inductive ring sensors each operate on one of two principles – static or dynamic. The sensors with static working principles detect metallic objects that travel quick or very slow, even when they stop in the middle of a ring, such as for level controlling. With the dynamic principle, the sensor can detect extremely small objects, even at high speed, such as springs conveyed by compressed air. One advantage of the dynamic type is that they automatically adapt to changing environmental conditions like metallic contamination. This makes them more reliable.
There are three other ways to classify these sensors. Inductive tube sensors are recommended for tight spaces that do not allow the tube to pass through a ring. Capacitive sensors can detect liquid in glass or plastic tubes, typically from six to 21 millimetres (mm) in diameter. The third type, optical sensors, can detect small, fast-moving, non-metallic objects in transparent feeding hoses. We at IBIS also supply special Dietz sensors with analog outputs for thickness measurement, size separation, or part separation.
Dietz ring sensors have an optimized screening against EMI interference, which enables users to mount them close to each other or to machine parts. They are available in 16 designs, with diameters that go from 4.1 to 151 mm.
These sensors are useful for many applications:
- detection of quick-moving small parts in feeding hoses;
- congestion and ejection control;
- tool fixation;
- separation of metallic foreign bodies;
- wire-breakage detection;
- size separation and thickness measurement;
- mounting and feeding systems;
- screwdriving and riveting robots;
- wire processing; and
- detecting foreign bodies in food processing.
