Photoelectric sensors for hygiene-critical applications
Due to Ecolab approval, process engineers in the food and beverage sector use the M18P Optos. The M12M and M18M devices not only offer the same sensing ranges and resistance to washdown and process fluids, but also bring additional robustness to environments where mechanical shock and excessive vibration occur (Ecolab certification pending for M12M and M18M devices).With chrome-plated brass housings (M12M) and stainless steel housings (M18M), each with shatterproof PMMA optics, the sensors are suitable for the harshest environments.
Full IO-Link functionality enables real-time access to process data as well as features such as user-configurable outputs, sensitivity adjustment, event flags, dual-channel operation and sensor temperature measurement. They also offer ranges of up to 1.2 m (photoelectric proximity switch), 7 m (retro-reflective sensor), 30 m (through-beam sensor) and 250 mm (background suppression).
