Photoelectric Sensor in Compact Housing

The OG-Cube photoelectric sensor offers reliable position detection in industrial applications such as conveying, packaging, material handling and automotive manufacturing.

The sensor provides high optical performance in a compact metal housing designed to withstand harsh industrial conditions. The sensor features metal M18 mounting threads that will not strip during mounting and its standard M12 connector resists high torquing, providing quick wiring. For application versatility, the product family includes two models: high-precision background suppression and long-range polarized retro-reflective. High precision background suppression technology eliminates the need for adjustments as targets colors change. These background suppression models incorporate a sensing element that contains 63 diode receivers placed on an integrated circuit. The multiple receivers provide improved feedback about the target and the background. Models are available with pushbutton setup and an adjustable sensing range from 15…200mm. The sensors are designed to provide long sensing ranges that increase the distance between the sensor and the target, preventing physical damage from fast-moving targets. Fixed range units offer a 100mm sensing range or 200 mm sensing range. List price for the OG-Cube starts at $69.00.
