SICK USA has introduced the Roller Sensor Bar (RSB), a photoelectric sensor solution to accommodate a variety of packaging shapes and sizes. It features a spring-loaded end cap that removes the need for tools to teach and align the sensor. It also features flexible mounting options to integrate into different conveyor applications. 

Able to be mounted between rollers or belted sections to detect objects between conveyor sections and in transfer zones, the sensor uses ambient light technology to increase throughput by reducing false trips due to objects in the background. The technology works using IO-Link communication to deliver real-time status information that works to avoid unplanned downtimes and conveyor jams.

Housing lengths are offered in 8 to 47 in. (200 to 1,200 mm) and beam spacing between 2 to 8 in. (50 to 200 mm) to detect any type of package. 

The RSB is suitable for flat or irregularly shaped objects due to the mounting of the sensor between the rollers looking up at objects on the conveyor.
