Two families of sensors from Rockwell Automation withstand high-pressure and high-temperature wash downs, while offering resistance to corrosion and damage caused by harsh cleansing agents.
The 42CS photoelectric and 871TS inductive sensor families feature
stainless steel construction, extended temperature ratings and IP69K
enclosure ratings. IP69K testing replicates the steam-cleaning process
typically used in the food and beverage industry. This testing requires
the sensors to withstand spray pressure up to 1,450 psi and temperatures
up to 176 degrees F (80 degrees C). Both sensor families have been
subjected to and certified to pass chemical compatibility testing by 2
