SENSORS: Pepperl+Fuchs Dura-VueTM MLV12 Series Photoelectric Sensors are now available in diffuse mode with background evaluation. Dura-VueTM background evaluation sensors provide a sensing range from 50 to 150 mm, with a 4 mm light spot that enables the sensors to detect even the smallest targets. They are engineered to detect all targets regardless of color or shape, making them well-suited for use in material handling and packaging applications. Dura-VueTM series sensors feature a harsh-duty IP67 rated metal-framed housing with swivel connector and deliver reliable operation in temperatures as low as -40F. Users will also benefit from highly visible front and rear LED status indicators, cross-talk protection and high immunity to ambient light.
