Wintriss releases die protection sensors

Wintriss Controls Group introduced a line of sensors for protecting stamping and forming press dies. It includes broader range proximity sensors, short- and long-range diffuse reflective sensors, a distance-settable optical triangulation sensor and an ultra-long infrared through-beam sensor. The proximity sensors have four times the range of similarly-sized inductive proximity sensors. Proximity sensors that detect only non-ferrous metals are available. Long-range diffuse reflective sensors utilize infrared instead of visible light to minimize false actuations caused by oil mist in the sensing field.
