Color discrimination, mark sensing and fine parts detection are possible with the FX7 fiber optic beam sensor from Ramco Electric (West DesMoines, IA).
It uses a red LED light source for sensing distances to 20' with M14 thru-beam cables. The standard diffuse cable provides a sensing distance to 6". A microprocessor uses a 10-bit analog digital converter for the highest sensing resolution in the industry says the company.
