The W4S-3 incorporates OES3 technology into the vendor’s third generation custom ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit) to provide what is claimed to be the best background and foreground suppression in the market. These sensors ignore stray background reflections, detect multi-colored or shiny objects, and provide high immunity to ambient light. Their smooth, stainless steel housing reduces bacteria growth that can result when food particles become lodged in the housings’ small grooves or crevices. This durable housing also gives the sensor a longer lifecycle, reducing replacement and downtime costs incurred when sensors frequently fail.
