H3218 Center-Gide Detector Overview

The H3218 Center-Guide Detector is the ideal solution for center-guiding strips in metals applications. Control is maintained during material width changes, with no repositioning of the detector required during product width changes. An automatic calibration routine can be initiated either locally via a pushbutton or remotely through a contact closure, and allows the detector to compensate for varying light levels based on detector-to-light source gap.
