The new generation of BOS 18M photoelectric sensors from Balluff feature a sensing distance and high-function reserve with models that include energetic diffuse, retro-reflective and thru-beam, which are available as red light and infrared types. The series of red light sensors also includes a version with high-performance background suppression. Common to all the sensors is the uniform, rugged metal housing, the newest LED technology and Fresnel lenses ensure sharp contours which precisely reproduce the switching area. This means the sensors can even be used in daylight or strongly illuminated indoor areas. Optical band-pass filters also provide high ambient light rejection from sunlight or other artificial light sources. All red light and infrared models feature a potentiometer for precise setup with adjustment aided by highly visible LED indicators.
