EMX’s Advanced Detection Technology Ignores Cross Traffic


In many cases simply detecting that a vehicle is present is not enough. It is also important to know whether it is stopped or moving.

We have all walked down a sidewalk and seen the doors of a store open automatically, even though we are not going in. A similar thing can happen in parking lots or garages with automatic exit gates.

EMX’s Ultrasonic Vehicle Detector Makes it Easier to Detect Vehicles

Our Ultrasonic Vehicle Detector (USVD-4X) is the perfect alternative.

UVX Luminescence Sensor from EMX Industries Deployed Successfully by UK-based Company

Vision System Integrator in the UK Utilizes UVX-300 Luminescence Sensor from EMX With Great Success.

Cleveland, OH  EMX Industries, Inc. prides itself on creating and manufacturing sensors which out-perform the competition by the numbers. Even more important than the specs and technical details though, the company is most proud of producing high quality and reliable real-world applications for clients in need of specific solutions.

The UVX-300G-FGC luminescence sensor from EMX has been put to the test by a vision system integrator based in the United Kingdom. This company utilizes verification systems to check quality, legitimacy and other information across various business and consumer products, from banknotes to travelers checks, from barcodes to high quality packaging and security labels.

This company was in need of a better solution than the typical vision systems they worked with. They needed to inspect tax stamps which were coated with a unique UV pattern to verify authenticity.

What they found was that the UVX-300G-FGC was easier to use, and produced accurate and consistent results. Not only that, but it was also more cost-efficient, improving the business’s operation and its bottom line at the same time.

The UVX-300G-FGC is one of many high quality luminescence sensors in the UVX family. These robust and dependable sensors perform their job more reliably than vision systems which cost 10 times the price, something which EMX’s client in the UK found out firsthand.

UVX luminescence sensors are the only of their type with both auto-teach and manual calibration functionality, offering great ease of use, while also offering fine-tuning and precise adjustments. With three to six times the range of competing sensors, they stay out of harm’s way and can be integrated with any existing setup.

Their unique numerical display allows users to see the intensity of each reading, allowing easy on-line adjustments, and the sensor also offers both analog and discrete output. It’s the smallest and fastest luminescence sensor on the market, and while the specs are great, what’s even better is that EMX’s clients are discovering this to be true while they put the product to the test in the real world.
