Proximity, photoelectric sensors withstand washdown to conditions up to 212F
AutomationDirect introduced a line of food and beverage sensors. Compliant with the IP69K standard, the sensors withstand washdown conditions up to 212℉ and are constructed of FDA certified materials. The PFM 12 mm and PFK 18mm proximity sensors come with shielded or unshielded stainless steel housings and M12 quick-disconnect plug with gold-plated pins. The PFM series has a standard sensing distance of up to 4 mm and extended distance of up to 8 mm. The PFK series has a standard sensing distance of up to 8 mm and extended distance of up to 12 mm.
The PFT 30 mm series of proximity sensors are available in four models with sensing ranges up to 22 mm. The VFK 18 mm and VFT 30 mm series proximity sensors feature half-inch micro AC quick-disconnect plugs with gold-plated pins. With complete overload protection, each series provides normally-open 20 to 140 VAC outputs.
Two series of 18 mm food and beverage photoelectric sensors have also been added. The FF series photoelectric sensors are available in 30 models and four styles: diffuse, polarized reflective, through-beam, and retro-reflective (for transparent objects). Sensing distances range from 100 mm to 20 meters.
