Typical applications

FX-100 applications
  • Wafer detection: Detects wafer carrier cases through vacuum chamber´s view port.
  • Wafer detection: Sensing possible in corrosive environment. Lenses at the ends of the fiber heads expand the sensing range.
  • Detection of breaks / cracks of glass
  • Detection over long ranges
  • Detection of glass substrate in vacuum chamber
  • Detection of glass substrate
