Plug-In Through-Beam Sensors offer sensing range up to 8 m.
May 9, 2012 -
Offering snap-in installation, BB10 Series operates from -40 to 60įC, making sensors suited for door, turnstile, elevator, and escalator applications in locations that experience widely fluctuating temperatures. Units feature watertight IP67-rated housing with sealed rear panel and status LED that confirms alignment and signal strength. Housing depth of less than 1 in. enables sensors to fit within door frame or extruded metal railing.

New Thru-Beam Sensors Deliver Large-Sensor Range in Tiny Package Ideal for Door, Turnstile, Elevator and Escalator Applications
New BB10 series sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs provide quick snap-in installation and reliable sensing range up to 8 m, even in wide-ranging temperatures
TWINSBURG, OH - Pepperl+Fuchs introduces BB10 Series Plug-In Through-Beam Sensors. These affordable sensors provide quick snap-in installation. They deliver reliable sensing up 8 m, even in temperature extremes from -40 degrees C up to 60 degrees C. This makes them well suited for use in door, turnstile, elevator and escalator applications in extremely cold regions and locations that experience widely fluctuating temperatures. Also, a housing depth of less than 1 inch (22 mm) means they easily fit within a door frame or extruded metal railing.
"There is no easier way to mount a photoelectric sensor - users simply drill a 13 mm hole and snap the sensor into place. That's it," says Jeff Allison, Product Manager, Pepperl+Fuchs. "These sensors can be mounted to prevent cross-talk, which supports multi-beam sensor installations, and a status LED confirms alignment and signal strength."
BB10 sensors feature a watertight IP67 rated housing, with a sealed rear panel that protects against temperature changes and moisture ingress for long term stability.
