Retroreflective Sensors are used in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications. Retroreflective Sensors are some of the most common, effective Photoelectric Sensors used in industry today. They are a popular choice as they last longer, function better, and are incredibly accurate.
RS offer an extensive selection of high-quality Retroreflective Sensors from industry-leading brands including Allen Bradley, Banner, Baumer, Omron, Pepperl Fuchs, Sick, and of course, RS PRO.
Retroreflective photoelectric sensors have both the transmitter and receiver contained within the same housing but require a reflector opposite to the sensor. The reflector bounces the light beam back to the transmitter until an object breaks the beam. Objects which are highly reflective such as aluminium require sensors with polarising filters. The filter allows the sensor to acknowledge that the reflected light from reflecting materials is different from the reflector.
