The die-cast aluminum box (IP67 protection degree) is designed for the industrial environment, it has a LED on the front that lights up when the impact is detected.
The detector is a small timed device equipped with a sensor that is particularly sensitive to the sounds generated by metal strikes.
It has a minimal footprint and can be easily installed on all types of systems, without the need to modify anything on the existing system. When the blow is detected, a neutral contact is closed which is available for any machinery management.
You can complete the standard kit with the probe with 3 meters of reinforced sheath (different sizes are available, as well as particular lengths on request) to be mounted directly on the detection plate.
In the aluminum extrusion sector, it is used for detecting the fall of the bottom once it has been cut by the shear.
When the shear detaches the caseback from the die and arrives on the plate, the impact between the metals produces a sound that activates a signal in the RCF (Caseback Fall Detector).
The generated signal can be used for different purposes: to stop the closure of the container, or to detect the actual fall of the piece of billet discarded by the LOGS shear (HOT SHEAR).
