October 17, 2019 - 4mm (smooth) and 5mm (M5 threaded) round photoelectric sensors are available from AutomationDirect in a range of sensing distances in both diffuse and through-beam sensing configurations. These DC-powered metal sensors work to provide accuracy in minimal mounting space and are designed for use in a variety of short or long-distance sensing applications.
Diffuse photoelectric sensors that detect object presence with reflected light from the target are available in detection distance ranges up to 120mm. With available detection distances up to 600mm, through-beam photoelectric sensors detect object presence when the target obstructs light traveling from the emitter to the receiver. Emitters and receivers are sold separately.
