Joining the popular and cost-effective miniature SA1E family of photoelectric sensors, we now have new SA1E-X models with advanced optic function for transparent or translucent object detection.
These transparent models were designed for accurate and reliable detection while offering an optimum response speed of 500μs. SA1E-X is one of the fastest miniature photoelectric sensors on the market and two times faster than other SA1E models. The SA1E-X transparent models feature a coaxial optic and narrow beam to ensure stable detection. They can reliably detect objects with irregular surfaces and are not affected by angle, inclination or shaking of the target object. Even objects as far as 2m can be detected.
SA1E-X transparent models are developed to solve challenging applications such as sensing of plastic, glass and other transparent bottles, transparent film for packaging, and wafer displacement.
A choice of NPN or PNP outputs is available, as well as a choice of Dark ON or Light ON operation modes. All SA1E sensors are IP67 rated, UL/c-UL listed and CE marked.
With the addition of this new transparent object sensor, the SA1E family now offers seven different sensing methods: throughbeam, polarized retro-reflective, polarized retro-reflective for transparent objects, diffuse-reflective, small-beam reflective, convergent and background suppression.
