Pepperl + Fuchs: Photoelectric sensors
GLV18 Series photoelectric sensors with Clear Object Detection from Pepperl+Fuchs use reflectors to consistently detect transparent objects up to 2.5 m away, or opaque objects up to 5 m away.
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.
