Pepperl+Fuchs adds three diffuse mode sensors to its ML100 Series photoelectric sensors
Pepperl+Fuchs has added three diffuse mode sensors to its 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, ideal for detecting non-uniform objects.
The ML100-8-W has an extra-large light spot to prevent false trips on heavily textured surfaces, and is highly resistant to vibration and object tilting. This diffuse mode sensor is also sensitive enough to detect transparent objects.
The ML100-8-HW receiver, consisting of a near-field element and far-field element, is able to clearly distinguish between a background such as a metal frame, and an object in the detection area.
