Redesigned photoelectric sensors improve operation, installation

Baumer redesigned its Series 14 line to improve sensor installation, adjustment and operation.

03/12/2009


Baumer has redesigned its Series 14 photoelectric sensor line to improve sensor installation, adjustment and operation. Designed to detect the presence, placement, orientation, or size of an object, these sensors rely upon either LED or laser light sources, and now feature transparent rear housings and improved electrical connections.

Baumer Series 14 sensors are available with three methods of operation: thru-beam (emitter and receiver), retro-reflective (emitter and reflector) and diffuse.


Series 14 sensors are available with three methods of operation: thru-beam (emitter and receiver), retro-reflective (emitter and reflector) and diffuse (single sensing unit with background suppression, foreground suppression, or intensity difference). All now feature a transparent rear housing that allows operating and reception LEDs to be viewed from practically any angle, simplifying installation and operation. Two new connector styles are now available: an innovative molded M12 (S14) connector, and a new metal four-pin M8 connector (S35A) that provides improved resilience and increased torque values.
The redesign of Baumer Series 14 sensors also includes a patented channel that allows the cable to lay flush against the sensor housing for limited space installations. This channel requires no additional depth like a plug-in connector, and can face backward or upward depending upon installation requirements.
A range of accessories and fasteners are compatible with the redesigned sensor family. For more information contact Baumer Ltd. online or via e-mail .– Edited by Renee Robbins , senior editor
