New from automation technology group, Rockwell Automation is the 44B photoelectric sensor incorporating adjustable background and foreground suppression.

The unique 44B photoelectric sensor is designed for industrial applications requiring reliable detection of targets close to a surface, such as a conveyor, that must be ignored by the sensor. With its unique optical design, IP67-rated housing and fast 1ms response time, the 44B sensor helps to ensure high-quality production line output with minimum false triggers.

The 44B photoelectric sensor is available in two sensing modes: background suppression of up to 300mm and foreground suppression up to 200mm.
