Use in hazardous areas

The photoelectric sensors of type O5 comply with category 3D for use in zone 22 hazardous areas with non-conductive dusts. Sensors of category 3D can be connected directly to the plant control. The housings and housing parts of these units and of the corresponding connectors of the EVCxxA series were tested with an impact energy of 4 joules.

The product range includes through-beam sensors, retro-reflective and diffuse reflection sensors.

The sensors are compatible with the tried-and-tested mounting accessories and system components of the O5 series.
