The Leuze electronic 46 series has been extended to include an exciting new highlight: Diffuse reflection light scanner IHRT 46/4.01-800-S12 with background suppression. Due to the use of particularly intensive infrared light, this diffuse reflection light scanner is capable of detecting objects largely irrespective of their colour or surface properties. This makes it particularly suitable for detecting dark objects, even at distances of up to 1 metre, and for reliable recognition of shiny vessels. Objects such as wood or building boards are detected reliably by the IHRT 46 scanner even at shallow angles. Alongside a compact housing and an “autocontrol” warning output, this sensor is characterized by extreme performance reserves even at long ranges and outstanding black and white properties.
