Compact Sensors Ignore Background

Dec. 19, 2006
SA1E miniature photoelectric sensors with background suppression feature adjustable sensing ranges from 20mm to 200mm.
The sensors can detect targets while ignoring the background that is beyond the defined cut-off range. This means that objects can be detected regardless of color and/or reflectivity, says the vendor. SA1E sensors are available with either 2m cable or M8 connectors, and with a choice of NPN output, PNP output, light ON and dark ON options. Housing dimensions are 19.5x10.8x31.5mm. The sensors are UL/c-UL listed, CE marked and IP67 rated.IDEC Corp.www.idec.com/usa800.262.IDEC
