Photoelectric device offers reliable sensing in confined spaces
19 January 2014
Eaton has launched a range of mini rectangular photoelectric sensors which offer optimum value and sensing performance for applications in confined spaces.
Measuring just 38mm by 13mm, the new E71 NanoView sensors require minimum mounting space and a range of operating modes, including polarised reflex sensor (2. m), thru-beam sensor (1.5m to 6m), reflective sensor (350mm) and clear object detection.
A key feature of the sensors is their ability to detect transparent objects made of plastic, glass or foils. They can also distinguish between bottles of different colours and thicknesses. An ABS plastic housing offering protection to IP66 standards also means they are suitable for harsh environments.
In addition, a potentiometer on the device enables users to adjust sensitivity of the sensor to the specific application requirements and a visible red LED beam simplifies the setting of the light barrier.
The sensors also include two LEDs positioned at the top to ensure a clearly visible indication of the operating and output status. All models feature a light switching and dark switching output and versions with a fixed focus beam and a 100mm focal length for the detection of small targets are available.
All modules are designed for 10 to 30Vdc operation and come with approvals for worldwide use.
