Sensors for stockyard control

Telco Sensors are often considered as the infrared sensor problem solver because the products can withstand the effects of the most challenging applications such as the extreme airborne contamination found at paper mills.

Log debarker

Telco series Spacescan SS01 is used on log conveyors for detecting the presence of the log after it leaves the debarker and before it enters the band mill. The series replaces a single through-beam sensor that sometimes fails to detect small diameter logs which pass under the beam, or logs with significant bow causes a gap. They can also be used to measure the log diameter at the in feed and then a second one can measure it at the out feed.

Very important in this application is that Telco Sensors are:

• Easily aligned: the sensors are easy to align and require no complicated set ups that guarantee effortless installation every time.

• Penetration power: severe contamination is no longer a problem as the sensors operate reliably even in the most hostile environments.

• Immunity from background light: the sensors do not need to be covered or hidden from ambient or extraneous light to function effectively.

• Shock and vibration: the sensors can tolerate severe vibrations and physical impact without hindering lifetime or performance.

• Water resistance: the sensors are designed to withstand direct exposure to water and high-pressure spray and are capable of operating reliably in wet conditions.
