Any object 12mm or larger is detected with the Reflex Array’s 50mm detection height, regardless of object properties or position within the array—including clear materials, says the vendor. The WL27-3 Reflex Array provides low-cost area detection in a standard sensor platform. Operating in a “reflex” (retro-reflective) mode results in only having to mount and power a single device, reducing costs. Further, an intuitive alignment/teach procedure quickly ensures the device is operating under ideal conditions with the reflector, says the vendor. A high-resolution version offers a Minimum Detectable Object (MDO) resolution down to 5mm with 24mm detection height.
