Retroflective Sensor

Feb. 22, 2007
The MOS 6k miniature photoelectric sensor identifies transparent objects regardless of shape, color, or compensation.

The MOS 6k miniature photoelectric sensor identifies transparent objects regardless of shape, color, or compensation. The retroreflective sensor's low hysteresis lets it detect glass bottles, test tubes, or transparent films. The BOS 6k is designed with the emitter and receiver on the same optical axis for a higher switching accuracy. A built-in polarizing filter suppresses interference. A pulsed, visible red light increases ambient light rejection.
