Pepperl+Fuchs’ RL31-8-H-800 Multi-Pixel Array Sensors are said to provide a sensing distance up to 3 times that of similarly sized sensors; can reliably and consistently detect objects of varied colors without requiring any adjustments or the need to “re-teach;” and quickly and easily adapt to multiple and evolving application requirements.
The powerful and highly-flexible solution provides the simplicity of a
single-switch point photoelectric sensor, but with the adaptability of a
laser distance measurement device. The sensors leverage an ultra
high-intensity emitter called PowerBeam resulting in a visible and
uniform light spot, even on dark and dull black materials, to simplify
sensor alignment and detection.
