FILED IN:  Controls  > Sensors
Sensors can detect transparent objects to a contrast as low as 18%, including objects as transparent as glass or a clear film. They carry the CE mark, and are UL/cUL listed. Sensors come in an industry-standard M18 threaded cylindrical housing that is up to 50% shorter and uses up to 50% less power than competitive models. Sensors include a flush-mount bracket for simple, tool-less mounting.  Ball-and-swivel and half-clamp mounting brackets are also available.
