Pepperl+Fuchs releases its Tru-Vue photoelectric background suppression sensor that is unaffected by potentially distracting background objects without using reflectors or thru-beam alignment. Able to consistently detect targets at up to 50 mm regardless of target color or reflectivity, the sensors are 29 mm deep, giving them flexibility for tight-confined mounting and offering tamper-proof operation in industry-standard housings with versatile side-mount or snout-mount options to satisfy various application needs. Features include a 4-in-1 output which automatically detects the connected load and sinks or sources as needed to simplify sensor selection and stocking. The sensors include wide-angle LED indicators to provide power, output and diagnostic status information in all directions.
