Miniature Photoelectric Sensors for Harsh and Wash-Down Environments



Florence, KY –  Balluff’s new R01E stainless steel flatpack photoelectric sensor, with its IP69K rating, is ideal for harsh duty and wash-down applications.  These sensors offer diffuse versions with ranges up to 100 mm, polarized retroreflective with ranges up to one meter, and through beam sensor with ranges up to 2.2 meters.  With a precise, uniform visible red light beam, alignment is easy and objects are reliably detected.



Not only does the small size provide flexibility in installation, but the stainless steel housing is built to survive the toughest applications in the harshest environments.  Connections are made by cable or M8 three-pin quick disconnect.



These sensors are ideal for applications, such as: packaging machinery, assembly machinery, material handling, small part detection, error proofing, and general purpose automation.  Built to Balluff’s highest standards, all R01E sensors offer reverse polarity and short circuit protection.  Balluff’s attention to quality, superior sensor design, and performance means better reliability, less down time, and higher productivity.
