Basic area sensors are multi-beam arrays of photoeyes used to detect presence anywhere within the controlled height (up to 320mm) of the sensor array. With simple NO/NC selectable outputs, these sensors are perfect for detecting various sized and shaped objects at random positions as they pass through the (2D) target area.

Area Sensors are multi-beam, through-beam sensors used to sense wide areas. MD area sensors from AutomationDirect are available in basic and advanced versions.
MD Area Sensors are optoelectronic devices with emitter and receiver elements used for detecting the presence of any object by sensing the light beam intensity returning from the receiver. The area sensors have an IEC IP67 ingress protection rating.
