High Performance AC/DC (Cutler-Hammer Enhanced 50 Series)
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.
Photoelectric Sensors - High Performance Rectangular
Enhanced 50 Series from Cutler-Hammer
Heavy-Duty Photoeyes at Incredible Prices!
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
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.
See the Selection Guide information under the "Technical Info" tab on our Web site, or in our product catalog to find the sensor model
that best suits your requirements.

The Enhanced 50 Series Photoelectric Sensors are a great fit for applications such as material handling, packaging and
wrapping, sortation and much more.
With the four models available,
this family of sensors fits the requirements for almost any sensing need, including harsh environments with excessive dust or
Review the application guide information below to help you choose the best sensor model for your application.
Longest sensing range
Must be installed in two points on system: emitter and
Install at one point
Less accurate than Thru-Beam or Polarized Reflex
More setup time involved
Lower cost than Thru-Beam
Longer sensing range than Diffuse
Must be installed in two points on system: sensor and
Small and focused spot for easier alignment
Excellent immunity to false triggering with most shiny
Clear Object Detector
Most reliable for sensing transparent objects
Must be installed in two points on system: sensor and
Short sensing distance: 45 inches maximum
PRICE! As low as the cost of equivalent
A-B 9000 units. You can lower your total system cost without
sacrificing quality or functionality.
Replacement for A-B 9000 units
Replacement for equivalent A-B 9000 units allows you to easily
migrate to the Enhanced 50 series as your standard without the
need to maintain spares/ inventory for two vendors products.
NOTE: While the replacement Cutler-Hammer
sensor will attach to the existing mating cable, external wiring
changes are required before the sensor's output will function.
