GX Series M18 photoelectric switches (18mm) rectangular plastic
DC. Our industrial photoelectric sensors and photo eyes offer you a high-quality, low-cost alternative to other suppliers of industrial sensors.
Welcome to Kickstart where you get to see new products here at AutomationDirect. Now today what I am going to talk about is our new GX series of DC 18mm rectangular photoelectric sensors. That’s a mouth full! Now AutomationDirect has been carrying a lot of different sensor styles for years. We just keep adding to the product lineup to offer more choices. What I have today is a compact cube style sensor that is ideal for conveyor applications or applications with tight spaces where a typical 18mm barrel style can be a problem. As you can see if I mounted this sensor on the side of a conveyor it takes up a lot less space and is less prone to being damaged than a standard barrel sensor like this one where the cable typically comes out the back. Now these new sensors all have an M12 quick disconnect and it’s already at a 90 degree in the housing and that keeps the cable from being damaged and keeps it protected. They all have an 18mm threaded lens and they do come with a hex nut for mounting or if you want to zoom in you can mount the sensor by utilizing the 2 mounting holes in the housing. Now on the back there are also 2 LEDs and 1 of these is for signal and 1 is power. I’m not sure if you can see them since it’s not powered up right now. Now we have Diffuse with background suppression. We offer Polarized Retro Reflective and we offer Thru-beam styles. You can get these all in NPN or PNP configuration. And there is a total of 12 new Part numbers with this sensor lineup. You can find the agency approvals and the specs for these sensors on our website at : www.automationdirect.com And don’t forget, you can find other style sensors and our quick disconnect cables for our sensors and if you need reflectors for our sensors, we offer those as well here at AutomationDirect.
