What is Leading Edge Detection? What is Leading Edge Detection? On equipment that moves a product, container, or package, sensors are used to detect the movement or presence of these items to make critical decisions. Specifically, these applications rely on detecting the leading edge of the item as quickly and as accurately as possible. Challenges of Leading Edge Detection Types of Containers/Packaging Trends in packaging have migrated from boxes to more challenging targets. Polybags, Blister packs, envelopes, totes, and tubes are all commonly transported on conveyor lines and can have...

Choosing a Banner Sensor Choosing the right sensor can reduce errors caused by product jamming, overlapping, side-by side, and irregular shaped packages. Single-Point Leading Edge Detection Small and Flat Object Leading Edge Detection Wide-Beam Leading Edge Detection Cost-effective yet powerful, these compact sensors detect boxes, totes, and many other objects. Short response time and large detection area creates an accurate solution for very small or flat objects. Wide sensing beam detects items like pallets, polybags, or other irregularly shaped objects.
