New: robust photoelectric sensor with long sensing ranges for demanding applications

The newly developed photoelectric OI Cube sensor from ifm electronic is distinguished by long ranges up to 800 mm for diffuse types and up to 15 m for retro-reflective types. For diffuse type sensors the range can be set precisely using the multiturn potentiometer and is shown on a scale. Even under harsh industrial conditions the range remains independent of colour.

  • 1. Press release wpi 477 / 0213 Area: Position Sensors New: robust photoelectric sensor with long sensing ranges for demanding applications. Essen, February 2013 – The newly developed photoelectric OI Cube sensor from ifm electronic is distinguished by long ranges up to 800 mm for diffuse types and up to 15 m for retro-reflective types. For diffuse type sensors the range can be set precisely using the multiturn potentiometer and is shown on a scale. Even under harsh industrial conditions the range remains independent of colour. Optimum choice for conveying applications The OI design from ifm electronic is designed for position detection in conveying where high ranges are needed. As diffuse type the sensor operates independently of colour so that objects with different surfaces can be detected reliably without readjustment. The metallic M30 type housing is extremely robust. Even without additional protection the sensor withstands impacts and shocks. Simple switch point setting A special feature is the switch point setting using the multiturn potentiometer and a distance scale. The turns and the scale value are linear to the distance (e. g. "1" = 100 mm, "2" = 200 mm etc.). So before connecting the sensor the switch point can be set and seen from the sensor scale at any time. You can hardly think of anything simpler and faster. These easy-to-use newly developed sensors with long ranges guarantee maximum reliability under severe conditions. wpi_477_print.jpg Robust photoelectric OI Cube sensor with long sensing ranges.
