Sensor ensures car braking system is safe.
The FA30 area sensor from Sensopart is performing
an important task in the automated production of car
parts by monitoring the correct assembly of an O-ring
at the flange of a pump used on the vehicle anti-lock
The auto industry supplier LUK in Germany uses the FA30
area sensor for this task by making use of its function of
'pattern matching'. The sensor detects the presence and
potential multiple layers of the O-ring used as a pump seal,
and at the same time the function 'position control' makes
sure that the O-ring is in the correct position.
The sensor therefore contributes in fully testing the ABS pump
flanges completely automatically on a revolving transfer table,
with any bad parts being reliably rejected with a digital switching
signal. The FA30 detects all error types including no O-ring, two
O-rings or a slipped O-ring.
This application of the FA30 sensor illustrates how complex
problems in the field of automation can be solved in a flexible
and reliable way. The simple yes/no digital information ensures
process reliability and optimum product quality. With the
easy-to-use PC software, the sensor is initially configured
and then continues to monitor the production process as a
