Long-Range Background Suppression Sensors

Bulletin 42BC Long-range Background Suppression Sensors offer high background suppression performance at sensing ranges up to 2 m (6.6 ft). This sensing capability fits applications where standard transmitted beam or retro-reflective sensing is not practical due to lack of easy access to both sides of the target or when economics is a major factor.
