Photoelectric sensors and proximity sensors in cylindrical housings
The cylindrical sensors of the F 04/05/12/18/30 series with their integrated thread, offer easy and space-saving installation.
Typical F 04;/05;/12;/18;/30;
Sensors in cylindrical housings have several special aspects compared to those with cubic housings. They are not only particularly robust but also, thanks to their integrated thread, offer easy and space-saving installation. Special designs that can "see around corners" are also available: they are equipped with a special optical system that deflects the transmission and reception beams around the sensor axis by 90;°, expanding the mounting options available.
Very easy installation
Straight or angled optics option
Metric threads in 5 sizes: 4, 5, 12, 18 or 30 mm
Red-light / infrared LED or laser light options
FMF 18 for detection of liquid limit levels
The sensors of the F 04/05/12/18/30 series differ in the diameter of the integrated metal threaded sleeve (4, 5, 12, 18 or 30 mm). Each series offers the usual functional variants: through-beam and retroreflective photoelectric sensors, energetic scanners, and scanners with background suppression. The sensors are optionally available with red-light or infrared LED or with pulsed redlight laser. Variants with potentiometer or teach-in operation are also available.
