Function: ML4.2-54-G/40b/95/110

The ML4.2 series is characterized by a robust, powerful and standard design in a miniature housing. The housing offers IP67/IP69K degree of protection, a scratch- and chemicalresistant lens, highly visible LEDs and robust all-metal bushings for mounting. Adjustable and tamper-proof sensors are available with a universal push-pull output and an electrical light ON/dark ON switch. The sensors have a high ambient light limit. Reflections from the background are suppressed. The unusually small, sharp light spot and the quick response time offer maximum switching precision on object edges.. Both red and infrared light sources are available. A high-performance fixed focus background suppressor is a useful feature. The sensors are suitable for precise object detection and open up a wide range of application fields.
