|Sun Shield for
Wireless Electric Eyes
When the electric eyes are setup with more than 100 feet between them, a late afternoon sun shining directly into the Photo-Receiver can reduce the working range between the eyes. (The Photo-Receiver is the electric eye with the antenna)
A simply remedy is to swap the electric eyes with each other so that the sun shines into the face of the Photo-Transmitter instead (the electric eye without the antenna). Or, you can construct a sun shade for the Photo-Receiver as shown here.
