How it works: Instead of being on continuously like our other optical sensors, the LED light source in the ROSM is modulated on and off at a high frequency. That high-frequency light signal is reflected back at the sensor for processing while all other sources of light are filtered out and/or ignored. The ROSM is packaged in a threaded 303 stainless steel tube and has a green LED On-Target Indicator.
