18mm round diffuse photoeyes detect presence via reflected light from a target object, with background suppression to avoid false positives. Using visible red or infrared light, these DC-powered nonmetal sensors offer detection ranges up to 130mm, and are available with integral 2m pigtail cable or quick-disconnect.
Photoelectric Sensors with background suppression - 18 mm
Diffuse (MS0/ MS1 Series)
The MS series offers compact (18 mm) photo electric switches with background suppression. The MS0/ MS1 series allows
reliable object detection at a fixed sensing distance regardless of the color and reflectivity of the sensed
object. Features include:
50 mm and 100 mm sensing distances
NPN/ PNP and normally open/ normally closed output
LED presence indicator verifies operation at the switch
IEC IP67 protection rating
2-meter cable and M12 quick-disconnect models
Photoelectric Sensors with background suppression - 18mm
Diffuse (FARS Series)
The FARS series is a standard 18 mm tubular diffuse sensor in a non-metal package which features
background suppression technology that greatly reduces false readings beyond the specified sensing distance.
The FARS series has a sensing distance of 30-130 mm and includes an adjustment potentiometer, further
increasing the accuracy of the sensor within its specified range.
30/130 mm adjustable maximum reading distance
Supply voltage 10 - 30 VDC, output current 100 mA
Cable or M12 quick disconnect versions
LED light status indicator
IP67 protection rating
NPN or PNP versions available with normally open/ normally
closed output selectable
