A photoelectric sensor, also known as the photo eye or optical sensor, is a device that is commonly used to find the distance, presence or absence of a tool using a light transmitter and a photoelectric receiver. The transmitter is often infrared for great viewing in different lighting. Photoelectric sensors are largely utilized in industrial manufacturing. The lighting emitting element emits beam of light which is received by the light receiving component. Both are contained in the same housing. When there is a target in the vicinity, the light will be interrupted. One of the major benefits of the photoelectric sensors is that they are not easily detectable without physical contact, and thus no damage to targets. The sensor itself will not get ruined which ensures it lasts long and free of maintenance.Looking for the best photoelectric sensors
