Sensor Combines Prox, Photoelectric

The Optoprox is designed to combine the best features of a prox and photoelectric sensor.

It is a photoelectric sensor that offers the simplicity of mounting, aligning and handling of an inductive proximity sensor, but without the range limitations of a prox. The Optoprox has a focused red light beam with a fixed sensing range up to 23mm, complete with background suppression. Featuring rugged construction, the Optoprox has a reliable fixed sensing distance suitable for a wide variety of target materials, exact background suppression, and small sensing hysteresis. Applications include presence sensing, positioning, controlling and monitoring of discrete and process automation sequences, plus Poka Yoke in industrial settings too rugged for standard photoelectric sensors.
