The LD46 series luminescence sensors line from Automation Systems Interconnect, Inc. (ASI) is ideal for use in such applications as pharmaceutical, woodworking, automatic packaging and mechanical industries, where ultraviolet light can be emitted and receive visible light reflected from luminescent surfaces. The technology in the sensor allows for the detection of fluorescent marks on any object separately from its colour, material and distance inside the operating range. The LD46 avoids interferences or reflections from non-luminescent surfaces, like mirrors, glass, shiny metal surfaces, etc. This sensor has a fast switching frequency up to two kHz, easy setting and clear bar-graph indicator, and is IP67 mechanical protected.
