SICK's Launches High-performance Photoelectric Sensor in an Extremely Tough Plastic Housing
Press release date: January 25, 2011
The W9-3 offers multiple ways to easily adjust the sensing range. Because of OES3 technology, the sensor is electronically taught (no mechanical moving parts). This allows push-button teach-in that is as precise as a potentiometer adjustment.
