Long Distance Optical Switches Used in an Industrial Coffee Machine

 

TT Electronics’ OPB720A-06Z was successfully used in a cup detector in a high-end industrial coffee maker. Our customer needed a sensor that detected a variety of cups, including clear cups, to be used in automated coffee machine. Our sensor with wide sensing/media range and ability to tune sensor to detect clear cups helped solve their challenge. The customer chose to work with us because we provided them with a product that featured special lensing to increase sensing distance and ambient light protection in a sealed packaging, able to reject ambient light noise and able to detext translucent material.
