Pepperl+Fuchs has added a background suppression model to its range of Tru-Vue photoelectric sensors. Tru-Vue background suppression sensors have a 50mm sensing range and deliver consistent target detection regardless of target colour and refl ectivity, with detection unaffected by shiny machine panels or other background objects. These sensors also eliminate the expense and installation time of refl ectors or throughbeam alignment. “Because of their compact size and simple installation and operation, Tru-Vue background suppression sensors are a costeffective solution for high changeover applications in the packaging, converting, material handling, assembly and automotive industries. And at just 29mm deep, they are fl exible enough to be mounted in tight confi nes where conventional 18mm cylindrical sensors simply won’t fi t,” says Jeff Allison, Pepperl+Fuchs Photoelectric Product Manager. Tru-Vue background suppression sensors deliver tamper-proof operation in industrystandard housings, with versatile side-mount or snout-mount options to match the needs of a variety of applications. Additionally, enhanced 360° LEDs provide power, output and diagnostic status indication in all directions. -
