Laser sensor detects tiny far-away objects

The visible red laser of the SA1E-L laser sensor allows for easy optic axis alignment and precision mounting. The laser comes in throughbeam, background suppression, and polarized retroreflective models. Throughbeam models detect objects up to 30 m, and the polarized retroreflective and background suppression models detect objects up to 10 m and 300 mm, respectively. The lasers have a built-in mode that selects Dark ON or Light ON operation, and available models include 1 m, 2, and 5-m cables, or an M8 connector.

The SA1E family offers seven different optical functions: through-beam, polarized retroreflective, polarized retroreflective for transparent objects, diffuse reflective, small-beam reflective, convergent, and background suppression.
