Background suppression models feature a mechanically adjustable sensing range cut-off that enables precise detection of all colors at distances up to 120 mm. Black and white test objects are seen to within 6% of the same distance. Sensors come in an M18 threaded cylindrical housing that is up to 50% shorter and with up to 50% lower power consumption than many similar models, according to the company. Sensors carry the CE mark, and are UL/cUL Listed.
