Type M18 for factory automation

The threaded design most commonly used for laser sensors in automation technology is the type OG with M18 housing. The robust stainless steel housing enables the reliable detection of even the smallest objects in rugged industrial environments. The units are distinguished by long ranges, long-term stability and high switching frequencies. Diffuse reflection sensors ensure very precise background suppression, thus preventing unintentional switching also in demanding applications.

The product range includes through-beam sensors, retro-reflective sensors and diffuse reflection sensors. On laser sensors with teach mode, ranges, light-on and dark-on mode and, in the case of diffuse reflection sensors, background suppression, can be set conveniently via pushbuttons.
