Sensors Ignore Background Objects

Sept. 12, 2006
Available with adjustable sensing ranges or tamper-proof fixed ranges, ML6 Photoelectric Sensors operate at ranges from 20mm to 120mm and are designed to accurately detect targets while ignoring background objects beyond a precisely defined cut-off range.
Housing dimensions are just 14mm x 18mm x 33mm. All ML6 sensors include 4-in-1 technology, which allows for four output configurations from one sensor, automatically selected based on the connected load. ML6 sensors are equipped with cross-talk immunity.  ML6 background suppression sensors have very low sensitivity to color, detecting white and black objects to within 10 percent of the same distance.  Small and sharp visible red light beams aid in sensing small parts.  Pepperl+Fuchswww.am.pepperl-fuchs.comPhone: 330.486.0001
