Photoelectric Sensors with Compact Size and 1500 mm Sensing Distance

Jan. 2, 2020
The E3AS series reflective-type photoelectric sensors from Omron combine accurate detection for diverse targets, exceptional sensing distance, environmental robustness, and compact size.

By maintaining stable detection without being influenced by varying sensing distances, colors, materials, or surfaces, the sensors make selection, adjustment, and maintenance tasks easier, improving commissioning and operation rates. The full sensing range of 50 mm to 1500 mm eliminates the need for users to select different sensors for each application. The time-of-flight (TOF) detection method ensures high detection stability regardless of the characteristics of target objects, making sensor selection and adjustment simple. In addition, an antifouling coating on the sensing surface reduces false detection and minimizes maintenance needs in environments with oil, dust, or steam. Dirty sensing surfaces can result in false detections when conventional photoelectric sensors are used, causing unexpected recovery work after line stoppages and periodic cleanings to prevent future stoppages.
