TWINSBURG, Ohio, Dec. 28, 2010 — Pepperl+Fuchs has introduced the MH01-M18 mounting brackets for use with its ML17 series as well as all M18 cylindrical photoelectric sensor families. The brackets provide an affordable means of mounting photoelectric sensors with industry-standard M18 threading for packaging, materials handling and general automation applications with multi-axes alignment needs. The company says that they deliver more flexible photoelectric sensor positioning. Unlike standard right angle mounting brackets that are inherently inflexible, these half-clamp style models allow the sensor to quickly be turned on several axes for easy adaptation to changing multi-axes alignment application needs. They fasten on a 12-mm-diameter rod or bolt common to packaging and materials handling equipment. Once fastened, the half-clamp can be rotated 360° around the rod or bolt to best align the sensor to satisfy the specific application requirements.
