Photoelectric sensors - Use in coolants and lubricants

  • Robust stainless steel housing with high ingress resistance
  • Diffuse reflection sensors with reliable background suppression
  • Range is independent of the object colour
  • For use in metalworking and in the automotive industry
  • High protection rating


Use in applications with coolants and lubricants

The photoelectric O6 coolant sensors are especially suited for applications in machine tools, metal working, conveyor technology and the automotive industry. The robust stainless steel housing with protection rating IP 68 / IP 69K is designed for use in harsh industrial environments.

The potentiometers and rotary switches are fitted with a double seal. In combination with the flush front pane, it guarantees optimum resistance to oils and coolants.

The transparent black housing cover ensures that, even in bright lighting conditions, the LEDs for switching status and operation are highly visible.

The diffuse reflection sensors provide reliable background suppression, even in cases of highly reflective backgrounds and objects like the oily and greasy metal surfaces of the parts to be worked. The sensing range is independent of the type and colour of the object to be detected.
