Inductive edge sensor BMI4
Strip edge position sensing of metal strips
The inductive edge sensor is used to detect the edge position of metal strip material in a contact-free manner. A strip edge guiding system is realised in combination with a control amplifier and an actuator, and a strip centre guiding system is realised with two edge sensors.
The inductive edge sensor operates in combination with the separate SMI evaluation electronics to ascertain the position of the detected strip edge, which is transferred to the control amplifier via CAN bus. Each inductive edge sensor fundamentally consists of a transmitter and receiver coil, which are accommodated in a protective housing.
A maximum of 2 edge sensors can be simultaneously connected to the SMI evaluation electronics.
