Pepperl+Fuchs Inc.Request Info
The GLV18 series photoelectric sensors with clear object detection available from Pepperl+Fuchs use reflectors to detect transparent objects up to 2.5 m away, or opaque objects up to 5 m away. They can detect transparent objects to a contrast as low as 18%, including objects as transparent as glass or a clear film. They carry the CE mark and are UL/cUL-listed. The sensors come in an industry-standard M18 threaded cylindrical housing that is up to 50% shorter and with up to 50% lower power consumption than many competitive models. They include a flush-mount bracket that allows for a simple, tool-less, unobtrusive means of being mounted on a conveyor. Ball-and-swivel and half-clamp mounting brackets are also available to facilitate precise positioning of the sensors. They are suited for use in materials handling applications, primarily for detecting clear shrink-wrap webs or semitransparent trays or cartons.

A noncrystalline, inorganic mixture of various metallic oxides fused by heating with glassifiers such as silica, or boric or phosphoric oxides. Common window or bottle glass is a mixture of soda, lime and sand, melted and cast, rolled or blown to shape. Most glasses are transparent in the visible spectrum and up to about 2.5 µm in the infrared, but some are opaque such as natural obsidian; these are, nevertheless, useful as mirror blanks. Traces of some elements such as cobalt, copper and...
