ML6 Series subminiature photoelectric sensors are available with dual sensor redundant detection and independent outputs, long-range background suppression sensing models, and retroreflective sensing models with no sensing deadband. The sensor delivers dual beams from two emitter LEDs that reflect light to two receivers, and two independent outputs indicate the state of each separate beam. You can align or guide translucent paper, plastic and fabric webs because the sensor serves as two sensors in one package. When the web is properly positioned one beam detects the web while the other beam does not. This sensor can also be used to detect a gap between two objects to suppress the detection of small particles such as textile fibers.
Two long-range background suppression sensing models, ML6-8-H-150-RT/59/65a/115/136 and ML6-8-H-150-RT/59/65a/115b/136, provide sensing distances 25% greater than previous generation ML6 sensors.
