Balluff: Optical sensor
Even when the target is moving at production speed, the 6K subminiature optical sensor from Balluff (Florence, KY) learns its target with the touch of a button, electronically suppressing backgrounds and detecting clear objects.
Equipped with a microprocessor in its housing the sensor automatically makes adjustments while it's working. The unit's compactness combined with its ability to set the target remotely makes the 6K suitable for mounting in awkward spaces.
