Compact O6 type photoelectric sensors from ifm electronic

Recently launched at Hanover are new versions of ifm's O6 type photoelectric sensors in the standard small housing with 1" hole centres.

First released only last year in stainless steel, the more cost-effective plastic-housed versions of this successful range have now been made available.

The diffuse reflection sensor features particularly reliable background interference suppression and a powerful performance. A potentiometer for range setting and a rotary switch for light-on/dark-on selection are intuitive and simple to operate. The sensing range is independent of the characteristics and colour of the object to be detected.

Even highly reflective backgrounds like stainless steel as well as moving machine parts have no influence on the background suppression. The clearly defined round light spot in the operating area ensures a consistent light distribution in the light cone. Scattered light around the light spot potentially interfering with other photoelectric sensors is avoided. This provides additional sensing reliability.

For the compact unit (only 13 × 41 × 21mm) ifm offers variants with PUR connection cable, M12 pigtail or robust M8 metal connector on the housing. The sensors are also available as through-beam and retro-reflective systems. Although the optical performance is as good as the stainless steel version, these new versions are priced even more competitively.
