Demanding application sensors
Eaton has launched a new series of photoelectric sensors, with field-adjustable background suppression and an extended sensing range.
The use of the company’s IntelliView technology has enabled a number of new sensing techniques for colour, contrast and luminescence sensing for demanding applications requiring increased precision over large distances in challenging conditions.
High precision, combined with improved background suppression, are said to make the E75/E76 series into a flexible solution for a wide range of applications. Through the small number of sensing errors, the devices contribute to increasing the productivity of machines and plants.
The photoelectric sensor with field-adjustable background suppression is able to detect objects precisely at a distance of up to 190cm while simultaneously suppressing all other background objects. Additionally, the sensors simple installation enable users to put the device easily into operation and adapt automatically to the individual requirements at the site of installation.
The E75/E76 photoelectric sensors are divided into colour, contrast and luminescence sensors. The colour sensors feature a ‘chromaticity plus intensity’ system, which provides increased sensitivity for colour tone variations and improves the differentiation of grayscale tones.>
