The ML8-8-H diffuse mode sensor from Pepperl+Fuchs detects PCBs in front of a close background, even if the background is shiny or reflective.
The ML8-8-H photoelectric sensor
With this new sensing principle, all the requirements of conventional sensors, and greater freedom in machine design are achieved.
These sensors are ideal for all situations where PCBs are produced and processed. Transport and handling systems, automatic mounting machines, and at buffer stations, etc.
Perfectly detected: The ML8-8-H photoelectric sensor with multiple light spots detects objects and suppresses close backgrounds reliably.
The yellow display LED indicates reliable object detection despite indentations in the PCBs.
The basic unit, the ML8-8-HGU, also controls background suppression and precisely detects the edges of circuit boards with its narrow, elongated light spot, facilitating exact positioning.
