05 Series Photoelectric Sensors Offer Extremely Long Sensing Ranges and Simple Setup

EXTON, PA - September 19, 2005 - ifm efector's compact 05 Series photoelectric sensor measures only 70mm x 18mm x 47mm and offers extremely long sensing ranges. The product line includes a background suppression unit with a sensing range of 1.8 meters, a polarized retro-reflective model with a sensing range of 7 meters, and a thru-beam pair that reaches up to 20 meters. 05 photoelectrics are 3-wire sensors that are directly compatible with bus systems and I/O blocks.

The high-precision background suppression sensor is designed for inspection and error-proofing applications. The unit features a two-pushbutton Teach operation that quickly establishes light-on/dark-on programming. The sensor's microprocessor provides automatic calibration and can differentiate between the target and the background with minimal distance between the two.

Polarized and thru-beam models feature an adjustment-free, fixed sensing range for quick setup and are designed for larger area applications.

Visible red light technology simplifies adjustment and maintains the visible beam throughout the entire sensing range. The sensor's durable connector rotates 270° for alignment in multiple directions. A variety of easy-to-use brackets are available for versatile mounting.

05 Series sensors are Micro DC quick-disconnect units. List price ranges from $66.00 to $95.00 (U.S.). Mounting brackets range in price from $7.00 to $15.00 (U.S.).
