Keyence Corp. of America: Rugged photoelectric sensors
The Keyence PX Series Photoelectric Sensor heads carry an IP-69K environmental rating, allowing them to be subjected to high-pressure washdown applications, even at temperatures to 176ºF.
Stainless-steel casing prevents damage due to vibration and shock from tools or colliding with other objects. Sensor heads are backfilled with epoxy under vacuum conditions, filling every void in the sensor head cavity to prevent all-liquid substances and material from damaging the internal electronics. Tough, scratch-resistant lenses complement the sensor when subjected to harsh environments. Dual output feature allows user to easity see when the sensor activates and when the low-light alarm turns on. The Dynamic Stability Control function continuously and automatically adjusts the set point according to the environmental conditions, allowing the line to run longer between cleanings. Seven water- and oil-resistant types of sensor heads are available. Phone: 888/539-3623 www.keyence.com
