The SLE5 is a rugged, industrial label detection sensor. Its high performance, fast switching frequency, and compact housing are ideal for labeling machines. The SLE5 can detect single layer as well as multilayer booklet labels, such as coupons or instructions commonly used in food, beverage, and pharmaceutical applications.
The small infrared light spot of the SLE5 can quickly detect the gap between opaque labels on clear or opaque backing. The 5 mm slot width and 50 mm slot depth allow precise detection of a wide variety of products, including multilayer booklet labels. The SLE5 can detect as small as a 0.5 mm minimum label or gap width. The 40µs response speed (12.5 kHz switching frequency) increases position accuracy and ensures precise detection and placement on fast moving production lines.
The SLE5 label sensor can be taught via single teach button or remote teach wire and can be configured to detect the label or the backing paper based on teach order. Teach mode can be performed either statically or dynamically at speeds up to 20 meters per minute. Highly visible green and amber status LEDs confirm that the teach was accepted and display the current output status.
The SLE5 label sensor’s compact housing makes it easy to install in the dispensing ledge. The dovetail mounting option is designed for simple installation directly on machines, no tools required. In addition, standard M5 mounting holes are available for maximum versatility. Models are available with 2 m cables or integral M8 connector and with NPN or PNP output.
