W12-3 Photoelectric Sensors
Sep 2009SICK Inc.Request Info
MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 21, 2009 – Sick Inc. has launched its IP 69K-rated W12-3 photoelectric sensors for harsh wash down environments. The sensors use the company’s third-generation custom application-specific integrated circuit that incorporates OES3 technology to provide good background and foreground suppression at an extended range. The OES3 chip contains proprietary technology that enables the W12-3 to ignore stray background reflections, detect multicolored/shiny objects and provide high immunity to ambient light.
The sensors are available in nonprogrammable and potentiometer versions, both featuring an IP 69K-rated metal housing made of die cast zinc that enables them to withstand harsh cleaning agents in food and beverage, packaging and pharmaceutical environments. In addition, they offer multiple mounting options (dovetail base and back mount, flanged-base through hole, diagonal through hole) and a 270° connection that can be rotated for flexible installation.
