Sensing transparent media
The 18B sensor series, from Leuze electronic, extends its sensing capabilities in the area of high-performance sensors for transparent media.
Compared to its predecessor – the 18 series – the new sensor includes a more robust housing, smaller dimensions, shorter response time, higher switching frequency, improved adjustability of the switching point and a tracking function for extending the cleaning interval.
Due to the new features, it is possible to reliably detect fast, small, thin and transparent objects, such as foils, even under extreme environmental conditions – a true plus, for example, in the beverage industry. The visibility of the light spot and the LED display have also been improved, thereby simplifying start-up and operation. The optics minimise light beam tolerances to the extent that mounting can be quickly performed without alignment. The electrical connection is established either via the M12 plug or the integrated cable.
