Photoelectric sensors

Your Benefits

  • Simple and cost-effective application, as complex detection tasks can be reliably completed using a BGS sensor
  • User-friendly and high-precision adjustment of the sensing range thanks to a 5-turn potentiometer
  • Rapid and precise alignment thanks to a shiny bright and line-shaped light spot with PinPoint technology


Precise object detection thanks to technology fusion: SICK background suppression plus PinPoint LED technology with clearly defined line-shaped light spot and V-optics. No object will be able to escape precise and reliable detection any longer. No matter what tricks the object may play – whether it is highly transparent, reflective, or dark black – the MultiV can detect anything. What's more, the MultiV can be integrated in a space-saving manner as a miniature sensor without reflector or for use in a through-beam system.

At a glance
  • Reliable detection of flat, transparent, and reflective objects such as displays, glasses, and a whole host of metal parts
  • Gaps and holes in the objects do not cause the sensor to shut down
  • Detection of flat objects on conveyor belts
  • The space-saving miniature housing allows the sensor to be integrated in the tightest machine environments
  • Precise, reliable background suppression ensures that all types of objects are reliably detected regardless of their surface and properties
  • Precise switching points with repeat accuracy < 1 mm
  • Optimal operating range from 15 mm to 30 mm
