The Benefits of Photoelectric Sensors With Background Suppression

Recently, Locon Sensor Systems introduced an update to our photoelectric sensor offerings – devices with background suppression capabilities. These sensors are designed to provide an increased sensitivity and accuracy of detection, and can really bring a boost to your quality control.

Photoelectric sensors have a wide range of applications in a variety of industries, and are a ubiquitous sensing device, commonly used in presence detection. According to Contrinex data sheets, the sensors are programmable to accommodate a broad spectrum of application requirements, including timing and sensitivity manipulation. These versatile sensors are incredibly durable as well, rated as IP 67 by the International Electrotechnical Commission.

With the addition of background suppression, these sensors offer more precise detection, depending on your application design. By using a reflective target and a position-sensitive device (PSD) to receive the return signal, the photoelectric sensor can be calibrated to distinguish between the signal returned from the target at a preset distance and interference from background objects, allowing for a more precise detection.

These sensors are also available in a variety of sizes and configurations. The mini rectangular sensors are available in industry standard 30 by 30 mm and 40 by 40 mm versions, while the rectangular sensors are sized at 60 by 80 mm. Locon Sensor Systems also specializes in creating unique solutions for clients with different sizing or configuration needs.

Representing some of the best sensing technology on the market, these new photoelectric sensors could the perfect solution for your business or operation.
