Sensor has a clear advantage

Sensor has a clear advantage There are many sensing applications where the accurate recognition of objects is a real challenge - especially where the target object is close to a surface that must be ignored, such as a conveyor. The new 44B photoelectric sensor from Rockwell Automation, equipped with adjustable background and foreground suppression, provides an effective solution to this common problem. The Bulletin 44B sensor incorporates a dual-receiver optical system which, unlike standard diffuse-type sensors, allows it to actively 'see' both the target and background areas, while suppressing any background reflections. The result is more reliable object recognition and fewer false alarms, which can cause unnecessary product rejection or loss of production. The rugged IP67 'square' style housing provides a high degree of environmental protection.
