New Adjustable-Field Sensors Enable Users to Set a Precise Sensing Cutoff Point




Background interference is a huge problem for photoelectric sensors. Designed to eliminate that problem, Bannerís Q60 Adjustable-Field Sensors feature an easily adjustable sensing cutoff point, from 200†mm to 2000†mm (8" to 80"). The new sensors can detect objects with relatively low reflectivity while ignoring background objects as near as one inch beyond the cutoff point. Features, including Output Delay (ON- and OFF- Delay), light and dark operate mode selection, as well as security lock out, can be set using two push buttons or a remote wire.
