Photoelectric Sensors

December 30, 2008

The PX Series photoelectric sensors have heads that carry an IP69K environmental rating, allowing them to be subjected to high pressure-1,400 pounds per square inch (psi)-washdown applications, even at high temperatures of up to 176 F. Stainless steel casing prevents damage from vibration and shock caused by tools or collision with other objects. The sensor heads are backfilled with epoxy under vacuum conditions, filling every void in the sensor head cavity to prevent liquid substances and material from damaging the internal electronics. Scratch-resistant lenses complement the sensor when subjected to harsh environments.
