BGS Photo Sensors Are Here To Stay


Share

There is always debate of which sensing technology is better to use over a broad range of applications. And for the photo sensor world, BGS or background suppression is one of these. What many users don’t realize is that a background suppression photo sensor is what I will argue as a refined offshoot of the diffuse photo sensor principle, meaning the photo emitter and receiver is in a single housing and it uses the object or target as the reflective source. I say refined because it still uses a basic diffuse methodology, but has added technology that allows for a very specific response/detection zone based on the setting of the optics.
