Background suppression sensor ML100-8-H-100/95/120/162

ML100-8-H-100/95/120/162
  • Diffuse mode sensor with multiple light spots
  • Specially designed for detecting critical objects such as PCBs
  • Miniature design
  • Detects objects in front of a close background through precise background suppression
  • Can be adapted to the application in question thanks to the adjustable detection range
  • Precision object detection, almost irrespective of the color
  • Not sensitive to ambient light, even with switched energy saving lamps

Please note: All product-related documents, such as certificates, declarations of conformity, etc., which were issued prior to the conversion under the name Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH or Pepperl+Fuchs AG, also apply to Pepperl+Fuchs SE.

Function

The optical sensors of this series are suitable for both standard and demanding applications.

The series features a miniature housing design, two M3 metal-threaded mounting holes and a highly visible LED status indicator.

Each device is equipped with a sensitivity adjuster and a light-on/dark-on changeover switch for increased flexibility.

A wide variety of versions are available in both infrared light and red light with PowerBeam for easy alignment.

Special versions with BlueBeam are suitable for challenging applications like those in the solar and battery industries.
