Print Reprint
FILED IN:  Controls  > Strategy
The ML8 PCB series provides consistent detection of irregular objects, more precise and repeatable detection of edges, faster set-up and change-over, and more versatile mounting and visibility by virtue of their slotted mounting pattern and two position status LEDs.  Available in convergent mode with a narrow sensing strip and background suppression mode with an array of two or three light spots for optical performance. The compact 23 mm x 31 mm x 11 mm housing fits into tight confines.  An additional status LED can see objects passing overhead.
