The new S8 series of compact sensors offers excellent detection performances, usually associated with sensors that have larger dimensions and a higher price. The S8 series is able to solve the most critical sensor applications. A solution for packaging lines, food and beverage industries, automotive, test and assembling machines and electronic plants. The first models introduced offer coaxial polarized Laser retro-reflective, mechanical Laser background suppression, coaxial polarized LED retro-reflective for transparent object detection and contrast sensors with RGB emission, coaxial optic and very high resolution in a compact housing.

The Laser versions present extremely focused spot inferior to 1 mm and switching frequencies that are amongst the highest on the market reaching 10 kHz. The retro-reflective models supply great reliability and plant productivity thanks to an additional ALARM output for dirty lenses. The contrast sensor is the most compact sensor available today with RGB emission and coaxial optics. Connector M8 or M12 ‘pig-tail’ versions are available.
