UVX Luminescence Sensors Overview

Confirm manufacturing processes more reliably than vision systems that cost ten times more. The UVX™ employs our field-proven, patented technology, for effective detection of UV luminescent materials such as wood, grease, adhesives, UV inks, and optical brighteners used in many industrial applications. Its high sensitivity and fast response make the UVX suitable for high-speed automation processes and long-range use. The metal alloy case and glass lens provide robust construction expected in an industrial environment.

Our UV sensors confirm manufacturing processes more reliably than vision systems that cost ten times more!


Why Choose a UV Sensor?

These powerful sensors enable manufacturers to improve their productivity and bottom lines by automating numerous verification and detection tasks with extreme accuracy and speed.

Whether the goal is to upgrade a manual verification process or guarantee product quality, UV sensors are the solution in today’s fast-paced production environments. Discover what UVX sensors can do for you.

Luminescence Sensors Applications:

  • Packaging – labels, UV inks (visible and non-visible)
  • Paper/films – optical brightness
  • Textile – luminescent threads
  • Wood processing – oils, paints, grease
  • Automotive assembly and medical equipment – Glues, gums, adhesives

Features of the UVX Series Luminescence Sensors

  • The unique numerical display on the UVX series lets you see the intensity of each reading. Now it’s easy to refine processes and hysteresis.
  • It features 3 to 6 times the range of any competing luminescence sensor. The UVX luminescence sensor won’t get bumped or dirtied by target.
  • The UVX series is the only luminescence detector with both auto-teach and manual calibration. Easy for low-skill operators, but able to be finely tuned.
  • It also features adjustable UV light projection and high resolution allow pin-head size detection.
  • Our UVX series luminescence sensor allows for fast and convenient integration. In one luminescence detector, you get both analog and discrete output, auto-detect for PNP/NPN.
  • The UVX series is the smallest and fastest luminescence sensor on the market.
