With the VS8 range of its optical sensor partner Banner Engineering Turck Now miniature sensors for precise detection in confined spaces or near moving objects. The optoelectronic sensors Detect very small parts and other difficult objects that easily overwhelm other sensors.
The devices are with 21,1 x 14,6 x 8 mm dimensions only half the size of a matchbox. They are available with red laser as well as with red or blue transmission LED and as a through-beam sensor or reflection light barrier with fixed or variable background suppression. The red laser models even detect multi-colored targets and 0,5 mm objects with their precise light spot. The blue LED devices reliably detect targets with dark or reflective surfaces as well as transparent objects - without a reflector.
Side holes ensure easy mounting of the sensors in new or existing plants. The possible Schwalbenschanznut mounting also allows tilting and pivoting by ten degrees for subsequent precise alignment of the sensor. Clearly visible status LEDs, easy-to-reach pushbuttons and the remote teach option make programming easier and thus the entire commissioning of the sensors.
