Keyence Corp. of America’s LR-W series is a full-spectrum sensor designed to detect any change in appearance. It is capable of analyzing the full visible light spectrum. This technology allows operators to solve everything from simple presence/absence applications to complex applications that require them to detect the slightest differences in a shade of color.

The sensor is designed to be calibrated quickly with its simple one-touch teach function. Its detailed digital display and highly visible indicator light were designed with the user in mind.

Featuring a 500-mm range, the LR-W can be mounted wherever needed. To ensure stable detection, the sensor features an adjustable beam spot. This allows the LR-W to achieve a focused beam spot, even at long distances. Additionally, an IP65/67 enclosure rating minimizes the need for maintenance and guarantees longevity in demanding environments.

Given the extent of what the LR-W can do, photo-eye standardization throughout a facility is now possible, according to the company.
