Florence, KY : Balluff is introducing a new series of basic photoelectric sensors that will simplify the entire process of specifying photoelectric sensors. Balluff‚â€™s GlobalEye‚â„¢ series includes three different form factors: 18 mm threaded combination, small block, and standard 18 mm tube, each of which is available in background suppression, diffuse, retroreflective, and thru-beam models. Easy to install and simple to choose from, these sensors will not only provide reliable solutions in countless everyday applications, they will also greatly simplify stocking and maintenance procedures.
One of these sensing modes will work in almost all general duty applications:
Background Suppression sensors are able to sense targets and ignore objects behind them. Diffuse sensors sense the target when it reflects light back to the sensor. Retroreflective types acquire an object when it blocks light coming back to the sensor from a reflector. Highly reliable Thru-beam sensors have an aligned emitter and receiver. The sensor is actuated when a target passes between the emitter and the receiver and blocks light going to the receiver.
