M.S.R (Mirror Surface Rejection) Function (Retroreflective Type)
The retroreflective type models feature MSR (Mirror Surface Rejection) function which allow the units to only receive light from specific mirrors (MS-2S). This function allows stable detection of highly reflective targets including metals, mirrors, etc.
The Working Principle of Mirror Surface Rejection (MSR) Function
The light passed through the polarizing filter on the emitter will become horizontal. The light reflected on the retroreflective mirror will turn 90˚ and the vertical light will be received by receiver through vertical polarizing filter.
The light reflected from reflective targets will remain horizontal, and thus will not be received by the receiver with the vertical polarizing filter.
Mutual Interference Prevention Function (Except Through-Beam Types)
The emitter cycles can be configured so that the sensors will not be affected by other nearby sensors. This allows adjacent installation of multiple sensors.
Excellent Noise Immunity and Minimal Influence from Ambient Light
The sensors feature noise reduction algorithm and digital filters, offering excellent noise immunity and minimal influence from ambient light.
