Monitoring of Caps in Filling Lines

Both the high-speed overrun as well as the different types of metals make the reliable detection of bottle caps a very challenging task for inductive sensors. Additionally there are the high demands on tightness and mechanical robustness as well. For these demanding applications the uprox+sensors in the one-piece rectangular housing of design QT42 in protection class IP69K have been developed. A retroreflective indicates the presence of bottle as a trigger.

Your Benefits

  • The inductive proximity switch uprox+ reliably avoids wrong deliveries by detecting crowns and twist-off caps on bottles
  • Non-ferrous metals are detected at large distances
  • Made for use in beverage filling lines, thanks to the extremely short response time

  • Factor-1 sensors such as the uprox+ have the same high switching distance to all metals

  • Inductive proximity switch in rectangular form: Ni50U-Q42TWD-VP6X-H1141
