The R100 and R101 are available in standard, assembly-compatible housing designs and offer photoelectric sensors for both detection and measurement. They include thru-beam sensors, retroreflective sensors, including those with polarization filter, foreground suppression or for detection of transparent objects, energetic reflection light scanners and those with background suppression, as well as light barriers and distance sensors for measurement tasks.
All sensors are available with a PowerBeam LED or innovative laser technology depending on the task at hand. The latter combines the benefits of LED emitters with the strengths of conventional laser diodes. This results in optimized operating distances, high-precision detection, and distance measurement of small objects. The multipixel technology (MPT) developed by Pepperl+Fuchs and the innovative Opto-ASIC enable reliable, high-precision distance measurement to be integrated in a standardized compact housing for close-range applications. The R101 series offers the world's smallest distance sensor of its type. The innovative combination of multiturn potentiometer and pushbutton allows users to adjust all functions intuitively regardless of the series. Two LEDs show that the sensors are ready for operation and indicate their status.
Sensor Technology 4.0 Portfolio Expanded
The R100 and R101 series feature IO-Link compatibility. They are an enhancement of the Sensor Technology 4.0 portfolio from Pepperl+Fuchs, enabling Industry 4.0 production processes to be networked and availability of machines and systems to be optimized.
