Fife SE-26 Line Guide Sensor

SE-26 Line Guide Sensor

The SE-26 Line Guide Sensor is a compact, easy to use, center-of-line or edge-of-line sensor capable of reliable operations on smooth, rough, matte, or shiny web surfaces. This sensor is especially good in applications that have low color contrast between the background and the printed line, and particularly useful when guiding to the edge of a clear film web on a roller or backup plate.

The SE-26 will guide line widths from 1 mm (0.04 inch) to 2.5 mm (0.10 inch) with a narrow clear margin of only 2.5 mm (0.10 inch) on both sides of the line.

This reflected light-type sensor contains the light source and receiver located in a common housing. Light is reflected from the surface of the web back through the lens to a dual solar cell receiver where an internal cell automatically compensates for changes in light intensity.
