*1. Measured with OMRON's standard workpiece (White ceramic).
*2. Defined by D4σ method at the maximum sensing distance. Detection may be influenced if there is light leakage outside
      the defined region and the surroundings of the target object have a high reflectance in comparison to the target object.
      Also, when detecting a workpiece that is smaller than the spot size, a correct value may not be obtained.

*1. The IP67G is the degree of protection which is defined according to the JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards).
      The IP67 indicates the same level of protection as defined by the IEC, and the G indicates that a device has resistance
      to oil.
