AC photoelectric sensors – small, strong and robust

June 12th, 2012, Published in Articles: EngineerIT

The new OG-Cube photoelectric sensor from ifm electronic provides high optical performance in a compact metal housing. The sensor offers reliable position detection in industrial applications, such as conveying, packaging, material handling and automotive manufacturing, and has bright LEDs to indicate the operating status (power and output) making troubleshooting in applications fast and simple. A powerful visible red light source with a large spot diameter enables easy alignment for easy setup. The sensor is designed to provide long sensing ranges that increase the distance between the sensor and the target, preventing physical damage from fast moving targets. For application versatility, the product family includes two models: high-precision background suppression and long-range polarised retro-reflective. High precision background suppression technology eliminates the need for adjustments as target colours change.
