Even things “not graspable” are now detected reliably: Infrablack object with only 1 % diffuse light reflection can be detected dependably at a range of up to 50 mm. Innovative technologies constitute the best copy protection – and the new subminiature W2S-2 photoelectric sensor boasts plenty of those.  The new LED technology PinPoint 2.0 from SICK is 2.5 times more light-intensive than the previous PinPoint LEDs, ensuring even better switching precision and repeat accuracy.
