This section provides an overview for sensor brackets as well as their applications and principles. Also, please take a look at the list of 10 sensor bracket manufacturers and their company rankings.
Table of Contents
A sensor bracket is a fixture used for supporting a sensor. There are metal and plastic ones. There are various types of sensor bracket for laser sensors, photoelectric tube sensors, proximity sensors, and many other sensors, each with different mounting holes and mounting methods.
There are straight, L-shaped, and Z-shaped brackets, as well as some with pipes and others with rails. The position and angle can be adjusted in detail according to the desired installation location.
Sensor brackets are fixed to the frame of a machine, etc., to support a sensor.
When the light of a sensor is to be shone on a location away from the frame, or when the sensor is to be suspended in midair, a pipe-type sensor stand or a rail for sliding the sensor can be combined with a single plate type bracket.
Brackets are available for each type of sensor, such as laser sensors, proximity sensors, fiber optic sensors, and photoelectric sensors, and the bracket should be selected according to the sensor to be mounted.
There are single plate type, combination type, flexible type, and so on, which are further classified into products adjusted for each sensor.
The single plate type is a bracket to which a sensor can be directly attached and is available in two types: a threaded type and a cylindrical type.
Combination types are used in combination with single plate types and are available in L-shape or rail type.
Flexible types are used by attaching joints or sensor attachments to pipes.
The single plate of the threaded type has screw holes and is used to fix the sensor between the screw and the single plate. The sensor side has mounting holes through which bolts can be inserted to sandwich the bracket and sensor with bolts and nuts.
Cylindrical type is used to fix cylindrical sensors such as proximity sensors. The cylindrical sensor is inserted into the hole in the single plate, and the two thin nuts are used to clamp the plate to secure the cylindrical sensor.
