Double Metal Sheet Sensor and Control

Oct. 27, 2016
Reduces costly repairs and downtime to metal forming equipment.

Paired with a non-contact, single probe sensor, DS600 double sheet detection control can detect the metal thickness and prevent double sheets or improper thicknesses from entering machines – ultimately diminishing costly repairs and downtime. System measures the effects of eddy currents on non-ferrous metals such as 300 series stainless steel and aluminum with thicknesses ranging from 0.025mm-3.81mm.


Unlike other single probe double sheet detectors on the market, the DS600 system does not need to make contact with the metal it measures helping to avoid surface defects to the product.


Housed in an IP65-rated enclosure, the DS600 unit is thoroughly protected in the typical shop floor environment. This system is well suited for automation applications such as robotics, automated de-stackers, sheet feeders and in-fixture (Poke-A-Yoke) where sensing from only one side is possible. 



  • Basic DS600
    • Geared toward applications where the need for simply detecting whether a single or double is present is the main objective.


  • DS600 Premium
    • Offers eight-slot calibration memory, easily selected through discrete I/O, for quick change-overs with no recalibration required. This model also provides threshold adjustments and variable timing during the detection process for better gauging of metal thickness and more defined.


  • DS600 PremiumPLUS
    • Features industrial communications in addition to 64-slot calibration memory and memory backup to ensure the users receives the most out of their system.
