Balluff introduces BOS 21M ADCAP photoelectric sensor

The all-rounder uses red light and lets users choose from among four sensor modes: background suppression, energetic diffuse, retroreflective or through-beam sensor. All the sensor functions can be configured over IO-Link while the system is running, so that a remote teach-in can be initiated by the controller.
