Function: ML6-8-H-20-RT/59/115a/136

The ML6 series is characterized by a robust, powerful and standard design in a miniature housing. The housing offers IP67/IP69K degree of protection, a food-grade lens, highly visible LEDs and robust all-metal bushings for mounting. Adjustable and tamper-proof sensors with a double push-pull output are available. 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. Clearly visible red light sources facilitates alignment. 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.
