Eaton high-performance photoeyes detect presence several ways: diffuse (light reflects from the target object back to the sensor), retroreflective (object interrupts light rebounding off a fixed reflector), or through-beam (object obstructs light traveling from an emitter to a receiver). Available models offer a variety of long-distance detection ranges and connection styles.
The Enhanced 50 Series of high performance photoelectric sensors offers outstanding features, flexibility and durability at an incredible price. Choose from a wide selection of Thru-beam, Polarized Reflex, Diffuse and even Clear Object models, all designed in a rugged, industry standard, rectangular package. A variety of cables and accessories are also available.
Each model comes with a variety of input options, including DC 10-40 VDC, and AC/DC inputs at a universal voltage range (12-240 VDC/ 24-VAC), for maximum flexibility across many voltage ratings. AC/DC output choices include robust 3A SPDT relays. Cabling choices include built-in mini-connector, microconnector, pigtail micro-connector or a 6 ft. integrated cable. Other convenient features included are Dark-On/Light-On selectability and Gain adjustment available on all models.
