Fiberoptic sensors

The co. introduces the ML17 Tru-Vue™ series of photoelectric sensors for fiberoptic sensing. The fiberoptic sensors feature a compact housing with a typical sensing range of 100-mm-plus for diffuse fiberoptic cables and 400-mm-plus for thru-beam fiberoptic cables. The fiberoptic models offer 360-deg visibility LEDs, five connection options and 4-in-1™ outputs. The 4-in-1 outputs enable a single sensor to operate in NPN normally open, NPN normally closed, PNP normally open, or PNP normally closed configurations. The 4-in-1 simplifies sensor selection and stocking because one sensor model can now replace four sensor models. Installation is also faster because there are no extra steps needed to choose an output type, as the sensor automatically determines its output without external influence. The fiber sensor is most often used with plastic fiberoptic cables, although some glass cables are available.
