Photoelectric Sensors detect transparent and opaque objects.
Proximity Sensors

Photoelectric Sensors detect transparent and opaque objects.

Featuring Clear Object Detection, GLV18 Series uses reflectors to detect transparent objects up to 2.5 m away or opaque objects up to 5 m away. Sensors can detect transparent objects to contrast as low as 18%, including objects as transparent as glass or clear film. Status LEDs, placed 180° apart on housing, indicate if signal strength is too low so corrective action can be taken. Featuring...

Proximity Sensors

Driver Assistance System helps ensure safe lane changing.

Using ultrasonic sensors, Side View Assist blind-spot assistant is capable of registering objects 3 m to side and diagonally to rear of vehicle. If sensors detect vehicle, signal is checked for plausibility by system's electronics to prevent false alarms. System then warns driver optically, and if driver fails to react, it will provide acoustic warning. Working at speeds of 10-140 kph, Side View...
