A compact and space-saving solution
Leuze Electronic, Inc. Posted 12/12/2018
With the 412B series, Leuze electronic presents a new cylindrical sensor in the area of switching optical sensors which, with its compact, space-saving design, convinces above all in locations where little installation space is available.
With the 412B series in metal housing, Leuze electronic presents a slim, cylindrical M12 sensor design that is especially well suited for use in tight installation spaces, as occur in, e.g., material flow or in packaging machines. Compared to the previous series, the new series of switching optical sensors for object detection has an even more compact design and is available with various function principles: as throughbeam photoelectric sensor, energetic diffuse reflection sensor and as retro-reflective photoelectric sensor. In addition to improved performance data such as operating range, response time and glass optics, laser variants as well as models with NPN switching outputs are available for the throughbeam photoelectric sensors. Focus of the new development was primarily on the simple and intuitive adaptation to use by means of 270° potentiometer.
