The BOS 50K series of photoelectric background suppression sensors has a 2 m sensing range, comes with a highly visible red light emitter, and can detect objects regardless of color. It features a glass lens design in an IP67 housing. It is designed for installations where laser sensors perform poorly due to contaminants in the air.
Balluff introduces the new BOS 50K sensor family – the best in its class
Florence, KY (January 25, 2012): Featuring a new glass lens design in a hearty IP67 housing, Balluff introduces the new BOS 50K series family of photoelectric sensors. With an impressive 2m sensing range, this background suppression sensor and its highly-visible red light emitter is simple to set up and adjust, and it can detect objects regardless of color. It is a superior choice for installations where laser sensors may cause safety concerns or perform poorly due to contaminants in the air.
Other members of this 50K sensor series include: a diffuse mode with a range of 2 meters, a polarized retroreflective with 18 meters range, and a thru-beam version with a range of 60 meters. All of these sensors offer simple alignment and setup with a bright visible red light beam and fast adjustment with a potentiometer.
With their long range and precise detection, the Balluff BOS 50K family of sensors is suitable for use in a variety of industries, including: automotive, assembly, automation, material handling and woodworking.
