- Retro-reflective sensor in rectangular design with M12 connector (3-pin)
- Sensing range 0.1...7 m
- dark-on mode/ normally open
- The polarisation filter in combination with a prismatic reflector minimises the probability of false switching due to highly reflective objects; therefore ideally suited for the detection of highly reflective objects
- Protection rating IP67
DescriptionRetro-reflective sensor from autosen in rectangular design – dark-on mode The optical transmitter AO006 from autosen is used in combination with a reflector (autosen prismatic reflector AA950/AA951). The decisive advantage of the use of a retro-reflective sensor with polarisation filter in combination with a prismatic reflector is that the probability of incorrect switching by highly reflective objects (e.g. reflective vests etc.) is minimised. The prismatic reflector focusses the light, turns it by 90° and then reflects it. The polarisation filter avoids that light beams other than those emitted by the sensor itself cause switching of the sensor. Even highly reflective metal objects can be detected since their reflection cannot pass the polarisation filter.
