Reflex light barriers work against any background

June 13, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Wenglor Sensoric is presenting an optical reflex light barrier which functions without a reflector.

By simply pressing a key, the P1MM001 detects any object located between itself and any defined background. It makes use of a unique functional principle to this end, with which it’s even able to detect transparent objects without a reflector. An intelligent function for dynamic readjustment of the switching threshold which offsets external interference factors provides for additional process reliability. The unit makes it possible to reliably detect objects at considerable distances of up to 500mm without a reflector. Visible red light makes the sensors easy to align, and they can be set up for the respective application by simply pressing the teach-in key. The 54.5x27x16mm unit can be used in harsh environments thanks to IP67 protection, with an operating temperature range of -40 to +60°C.
