Slotted Optical Switches Used in ID Badge Printer


TT Electronics’ OPB420BZ was successfully used in an ID badge printer. Our versatile right-angled slotted optical switch with custom cable and output characteristics helped to solve the challenge of detecting presence of various sizes of ID badges as they are cycled from a magazine cartridge to a printing station. The customer chose to work with us because we offered a unique sensor that was able to detect the presence of an object that is not always presented in a linear fashion.
