Function: SBL-8-H-900-SL-V-Z-4871

Sensors of the SBL serie are used to easily control material flow on roller conveyors in material handling and other branches.

The SBL series is a precise background suppression sensor according to the 3 element method. The sensor features superior background suppression and a very good ambient light immunity. Material and transport container of all colors and opacities are reliably detected.

The special design allows the sensor to be mounted between the rollers of a roller conveyor or any other conveying unit. Mounting between the rollers is easy and protects the sensor.
