The advanced optics of MLV41-8-HV sensors identify paper dust buildup, forgiving mounting tolerances to accommodate imperfect sensor and paper alignment

The advanced optics of MLV41-8-HV sensors identify paper dust buildup, forgiving mounting tolerances to accommodate imperfect sensor and paper alignment. The sensors feature foreground and background suppression, which senses only where the web should be, not when it breaks and falls on the sensor face, resulting in consistent, reliable webbreak detection of various colored papers, reflective or glossy materials, adhesive films, and packaging media in printing, paper, and converting applications. Background suppression lets the sensor detect multiple colors consistently, to within 1% of the same distance.

Forgiving mounting tolerances means the sensor continues to operate properly, even where the inclination angle of the sensor to the web varies by up to ±20°.
