Courtesy: BalluffBalluff’s R01E stainless steel flatpack photoelectric sensor has an IP69K rating and is designed for harsh duty and washdown applications. The sensors feature diffuse versions with ranges up to 100 mm, polarized retroreflective with ranges up to one meter, and through beam sensor with ranges up to 2.2 m. The uniform visible red light beam is designed to make alignment easy and ensures objects are detected. These sensors are ideal for applications such as packaging machinery, assembly machinery, material handling, small part detection, error proofing, and general automation. The stainless steel housing is built to survive in harsh environments. Connections are made by cable or M8 three-pin quick disconnect.
