Note: The sensing range is the possible setting range for the reflector. The fiber can detect an object less than 100 mm 3.937 in. However, note that if there are any white or highly-reflective surfaces near the fiber head, reflected incident light may affect the fiber head. If this occurs, adjust the threshold value of the amplifier unit before use.
