Photoelectric slot sensors offer vast installation benefits thanks to their housing design. When it comes to operation, these new generation devices boast features such as high resolution, high repeatability, automatic signal threshold adjustment, ambient light resistance, and detection of and/or light transmission through transparent objects. Cross-talk protection enables parallel installation of devices despite extremely high switching frequency. These characteristics guarantee reliable detection of small parts, from 0.3 mm, across the entire detection range, even in very fast moving applications.
