Balluff BKT 67M family designed for fast, reliable print mark detection.

March 15, 2011   by Design Engineering Staff

Balluff introduced its family of BKT 67M contrast sensors that can detect slight contrast differences in challenging packaging applications. These sensors are specifically designed for fast and reliable print mark detection. The sensors feature a metal housing, and a rotatable connector plus variable mounting to enable use under harsh ambient conditions. A clear, user-friendly operating display ensures rapid startup. High switching frequencies (up to 30 kHz) allow for color mark detection on demanding applications. The sensor can also be set dynamically without having to stop processes. Depending on the complexity of the application, the BKT is available in a basic, advanced or premium version.
