Fife DSE-15 Reflected Light Sensor

  • Compact dimensions
  • Especially suitable when guiding reflective strips, reflective foils, or transparent film
  • Not affected by reflection from material webs
  • Temperature stabilized
  • Low power consumption
  • Can be used for new guiding systems as well as for an upgrade of existing systems
  • Fast, easy and robust mounting due to special mounting brackets and sensor positioners
  • The material being guided can be positioned anywhere between the sensor and reflector
  • Can be used for most unwind or rewind applications due to its low sensitivity to plane change
  • Can be connected to all available Fife web guide processors.

The DSE-15 reflected light sensor is ideal for most applications with opaque, transparent, or reflective materials.

Because of its compact size, the DSE-15 fits all web applications where space is limited.

It is possible to operate the DSE-15 with either a supply voltage of 12V or 24V. The output signal would automatically be switched over in that case. In 12V supply mode the sensor provides an output signal from 0 to 10mA and can be connected to all available Fife web guide processors. In 24V supply mode the sensor supplies an output signal between 4 and20 mA and can be used to establish a wire-break-proof connection to external devices.

An optional digital production data acquisition to Fife D-MAXE controller extends the range of applications for the DSE-15 inside the digital network environment. Additional sensor data can be provided to other hardware equipment if the Fife D-MAXE is linked appropriately to the network.
