SICK ‘s W15 Photoelectric Sensors incorporate OES3 technology to provide background suppression at an extended range.
The W15 ignores stray background reflections, detects multi-colored/shiny objects without false trips, and provides high immunity to ambient light. It also comes with flush mounting that reduces setup time and prevents the disruption of product flow. Customization options, such as cable cut to length, cable wrap with customer-specific part number, special connectivity, sensor pre-mounted to a bracket, kitted together with bracket and reflector, can help reduce material and labor costs. The W15’s advanced background suppression technology makes it useful for a variety of applications in the packaging, material handling, and food and beverage markets.
