Photoelectric sensors

Using PSD (position sensitive detector) and APR (automatic power reinforcement), the PZ-V/M Series of photoelectric sensors provides detection stability unaffected by target color, surface reflectivity, angle, dirt, airborne dust, and harsh environments. All 40 sensor models in the series have a visible red beam to ease positioning and setup. Once automatically calibrated, they need no further adjustment. The IP-67 sensors feature a smokecolored lens and high-intensity LED. PSD lets the spot move as the target moves, and APR circuitry adjusts the amount of light emitted according to target color and angle.
