The sensor can be used for detecting distance, absence or presence of an object by using a light transmitter and a photoelectric receiver
Bulgin, a leading manufacturer of rugged connector and component, announced the launch of a slimline range of photoelectric sensors that are specifically designed for manufacturing automation and industrial automation proximity sensing operations.
A part of its new forthcoming automation sensor series, the new sensors provide manufacturers a flexible and cost-effective solution for the deployment of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
The interface of sensor converts a photonic input to a digital or analogue output. The sensor can be used for detecting distance, absence or presence of an object by using a light transmitter and a photoelectric receiver, including a typical light point diameter of 5 mm at 30 mm. In addition, the diffuse reflective sensor is suitable for detecting objects from 1 mm to 40 mm away, having a response time of below 0.5 ms.
Key features and specifications
The sensor has a slim, simple and efficient design and the body of sensor measures only 30 x 16 x 4.5 mm. The efficient design helps in saving valuable space on assembly line.
The new SL Series of sensors features a dustproof and waterproof seal to any standard M5 interface along with a high degree of electrical and mechanical stability.
The sensors are IP67-rated and made with highly robust casing stainless steel 316 material. These sensors can also withstand a high degree of physical impact. In addition, these sensors are vibration tested to 10-50Hz double amplitudes (X, Y & Z in each direction for two hours) as well as bump and shock tested to 1000m/s² (X, Y & Z in each direction six times).
Bulgin’s SL Series photoelectric sensors is available with or without an M5 connector. In addition, these are available in both NPN and PNP output options.
