Miniature diffuse mode photoelectric sensors suit complex applications

Pepperl+Fuchs (Twinsburg, OH) has added three high performance diffuse mode sensors to its family of user-friendly and field-proven ML100 Series photoelectric sensors. These new versions are designed to provide advanced performance for increasingly complex and space-constrained applications. The ML100-8-W is equipped with an extra-wide beam light spot for detecting transparent objects or use on heavily textured and angled surfaces. The ML100-8-HW provides background evaluation sensing based on the triangulation principle for detecting irregularly shaped objects or use on low contrast targets such as black-on-black. New ML100 sensors with multi-beam background suppression (ML100-8-H-100) offer three light spots, appropriate for detecting non-uniform objects. This diffuse mode sensor offering includes:
- The ML100-8-W which features an extra-large light spot to prevent false trips on heavily textured surfaces, and is highly resistant to vibration and object tilting.
- The ML100-8-HW receiver, which can clearly distinguish between a background such as a metal frame, and an object in the detection area. It can operate without the need for separate retroreflectors.
- The ML100-8-H-100 sensor with three light spots for redundancy.
