Background- suppression image sensors

Two new midrange adjustable-field sensors join the World-Beam QS30 family. The QS30AFF400 foreground suppression sensor and the QS30AF600 background suppression sensor use advanced linear-imager technology to provide sensing for industrial applications.

The QS30AFF400 sensor detects objects varying in color or shape when a fixed background is present. The QS30AF600 sensor detects objects when the background condition is neither controlled nor fixed, and ignores objects located beyond the sensing field cutoff. Sensing range can be adjusted with a screwdriver potentiometer or via the remote teach wire input. A visible red LED sensing beam ensures easy sensor alignment.

The QS40AFF400 has a cutoff range of 50 to 400 mm, with a 400-mm maximum sensing range for all sensor colors. The QS30AF600 has a 50 to 600‑mm adjustable cutoff range, with a maximum sensing range of 400 mm for the 6% black card sensor and 600 mm for the 90% white card sensor.
