Original Press Release:
Innovative SmartReflect(TM) Light Barrier Requires No Reflector or Receiver
Southington, Conn. -- Baumer has introduced SmartReflect(TM), the first photoelectric light barrier to operate without a separate reflector or receiver. Available with IP69K-rated or standard plastic housings, SmartReflect(TM) light barriers create a closed light beam between the sensor and any background, and reliably detect target objects regardless of color, shape, transparency or surface texture.
SmartReflect(TM) technology is ideal for automated food and beverage processing, packaging/materials handling, or print and graphics sensing applications. These light barriers are easy to install and adjust, insensitive to dirt or wash-down, and very low-maintenance. By substituting any machine part in the processing environment as a receiver, the SmartReflect(TM) eliminates costs associated with reflector installation, cleaning, adjustment and replacement.
Baumer offers three SmartReflect(TM) sensor designs: IP69K-rated hygienic or wash-down models featuring ProTect+ impermeability; standard-sized 14.8 x 31 x 43 sensors with plastic housings, and a miniature sensor with a housing that measures just 8 x 16.2 x 10.8 mm.
