Series 31 Opti-Vue photoelectric sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs feature a compact, 35 x 62 mm footprint. The sensors are the company’s smallest photoelectric sensor line, offering a built-in SPDT relay with ac/dc models, and a 4-in-1 output with dc models. An integrated SPDT relay eliminates the need for a separately mounted and wired relay, and the company’s 4-in-1 technology allows one sensor to operate with four output configurations, automatically selected by the sensor based on the connected load.

Opti-Vue features include highly visible front status LEDs, ambient light immunity, and a rugged IP67 rated housing. Potentiometer adjustment and universal mounting provide easy set up and adjustment. Color-coded labels on the front of the housing allow for immediate identification of the sensing mode. Diffuse, retro-reflective, polarized retro-reflective, and thru-beam models are available, each with a cable or quick disconnect.

The Opti-Vue sensor is optimized for a variety of applications, including closing-edge monitoring of gates and industrial doors, object detection, assembly and packaging, material handling, and general automation. www.am.pepperl-fuchs.com
