Clear Object Sensor
Now with 100-microsecond response time!
The RETROSMART™ retroreflective sensor is optimized to detect clear/translucent containers and shiny objects from the leading edge to the trailing edge without false signals. This is required when the sensing task involves monitoring conveyor lines for jam detection. The sensor’s narrow, red light beam assures accuracy in detecting the leading edge of any product to trigger the response, such as filling, capping, labeling, and coding.
Industrial control functions require sensors that can provide dependable detection of position or presence of transparent containers. The RETROSMART™ provides a single, non-chattering output for each transparent container that passes by, independent of size or shape, empty or full.
Imagine… just point the RETROSMART™ sensor’s narrow, red light beam at the reflector and push the AUTOSET button one time. Now sit back and watch the sensor flawlessly detect any size PET bottle filled with water without worry about burn-through or double signals. When the efficiency of an entire production line depends on the performance of a photoelectric sensor, the RETROSMART™ is the clear choice.
