Dependable and versatile, the SE-22 is our most popular infrared sensor. Used primarily as an edge guide sensor, the SE-22 performs equally as well in center guiding applications. It can also be used in pairs for accurate center guiding where web width variations are limited.

The SE-22 has a standard sensing gap of 50.8 mm (2.0 inches) and a control range of 15.24 mm (0.6 inch), allowing for significant guide point adjustment. When used with an amplified signal, the SE-22 is also capable of guiding clear films.
