Pepperl+Fuchs ML100 Divergent Beam Sensors

Pepperl+Fuchs introduces ML100-8-W divergent beam sensors. Wide beam technology enables these sensors to reliably detect clear materials, very small objects over a large area, as well as glossy materials that can otherwise be a challenge to sense, without the need for a reflector.“Most transparent object detection sensors are aligned to a reflector and taught the reflected light level of the reflector. But with the ability to independently detect clear shrink wrap film, PET plastic bottles, automotive glass and other transparent objects without a background, ML100-8-W divergent beam sensors eliminate the time, cost and machine space associated with installing reflectors, making …
