Baumer’s SmartReflect photoelectric light barrier operates without a separate reflector or receiver. Available with IP69K-rated or standard plastic housings, the light barriers create a closed light beam between the sensor and any background, and reliably detect target objects regardless of color, shape, transparency or surface texture.
Applications include automated food and beverage processing, packaging/materials handling, or print and graphics sensing. These light barriers are easy to install and adjust, insensitive to dirt or wash-down, and low-maintenance. By substituting any machine part in the processing environment as a receiver, the SmartReflect eliminates costs associated with reflector installation, cleaning, adjustment and replacement.
