Photoelectric sensors

December 1, 2008


Pepperl+Fuchs’s ML7 miniature photoelectric sensors have a retro-reflective mode for detecting clear objects such as PET plastic bottles, clear shrinkwrap, glass and clear Mylar film. Capable of detecting clear objects up to 3.5 meters away and opaque objects up to 5.7 meters away, the sensors are 31mm x 23mm x 11mm in size. They are programmed with a single sensitivity adjustment that allows 1 of 3 different contrast levels to be taught.
