O7 photoelectric sensors

March 24, 2010
ifm efector inc., a leading manufacturer of sensors and controls, introduces a new line of photoelectric sensors that offer precise detection of small objects in part feeding, robotics, assembly automation and material handling applications.
The miniature O7 Series photoelectric sensors measure only 20 x 15 x 9 mm and are highly durable for industrial automation applications The sensor's small light spot and narrow light cone enable the sensor to detect small objects over long distances. The O7 Series sensors are designed with fixed sensing ranges - no adjustments needed - which enables simple plug-and-play installation. A visible red light beam can be positioned for easy setup and target alignment.The family of O7 sensors includes diffuse sensors with background suppression that are available with 30, 50 or 100 mm ranges; polarized retro-reflective models with a 1-meter range; and thru-beam pairs with a 1.5 meter range.The sensors feature a pre-wired cable with M8 Pico connector. Sensor options include Light On or Dark On, PNP models.The Micro DC units are are short circuit and overload protected. List price for O7 Series photoelectrics start at $87.00 (US).
