Miniature ML7 Photoelectric Sensors


Pepperl+Fuchs’ ML7 series miniature photoelectric sensors are now available in retro-reflective mode for detecting clear objects such as PET plastic bottles, clear shrink-wrap, glass, and clear Mylar® film. ML7 retro-reflective mode sensors can detect clear objects up to 3.5 meters away, and opaque objects up to 5.7 meters away. ML7 retro-reflective mode sensors measure a very compact 31mm x 23mm x 11mm, making them the smallest photoelectric sensors available from Pepperl+Fuchs for clear-object detection. They are quickly and easily programmed with a single sensitivity adjustment that allows one of three different contrast levels to be taught. As a result, these sensors can deliver reliable, repeatable detection of low or high contrast transparent media ranging from a clear web of shrink-wrap to colored glass bottles. ML7 clear object detection sensors include Pepperl+Fuchs’ exclusive 4-in-1® output. 4-in-1 output automatically detects the connected load and sinks or sources as needed, simplifying selection, stocking, and installation time and costs.
