Exton, Pa.— OB fiber-optic sensor system’s glass fibers are fitted with a 316 stainless steel jacket that can withstand mechanical damage and temperature extremes up to 600 °F. Thru-beam fibers have a sensing range of one meter and diffuse fibers sense a target as far away as 150mm. The amplifier incorporates a pushbutton and LED display for easy programming. The sensor evaluates actual operating conditions and automatically adjusts itself to provide maximum protection against false signals. www.ifmefector.com .
