Fife SE-42 Infrared Light Sensor

  • 17 mm proportional band
  • Insensitive to ambient light
  • Insensitive to electrostatic discharge
  • Temperature stabilized
  • Low power consumption
  • Small and lightweight
  • Option: available with air sweep connection, to keep the sensor field of view clean in dusty environments

The SE-42 Sensor uses modulate infrared light. It's light weight, small size and insensitivity to ambient light make it ideal for most web guiding applications

The SE - 42 Infrared Sensor measures the lateral position of the guided material photoelectrically. The control range (proportional band) is 17 mm, allowing
significant guide point adjustment. The SE - 42 is often used in pairs for center guiding when web width variations are limited. The SE - 42 sensor can be used
to guide either opaque or transparent materials.

Fife offers a wide variety of sensor mountings and
positioning assemblies for use with the SE - 42 infrared sensor.
Depending on the application, standard or custom designed mounting
brackets can be provided to ensure quick and easy installations.

The SE - 42 can be used with any of our applicable guiding systems or as a retrofit / upgrade for
existing systems.

The SE - 42 can be connected to all available Fife web guide controllers
