Reflective, Retro-Reflective and Thrubeam (breakbeam) types are all available in the PZ-G Series. These sensors have the power to blast over 130 ft and the sensitivity to detect even clear targets.
Simple trimpot calibration and light-on/dark-on capabilities are built into each PZ-G. Additional features like built-in alignment indicators make the PZ-G series very easy to use.
One touch brackets and optional M8 & M12 quick disconnects save considerable time during the installation process or replacement.
The Problem:The operators switch between jobs to keep fresh, however some components are not always placed onto the assemblies. This can create several scenarios. The first is that the assembly damages parts within the automation equipment.
In industrial automation, the large majority of general purpose photoelectric sensors are made of plastic. While this design is adequate for certain environments, harsher industrial environments require that these sensors be frequently replaced due to damage. By combining a metal housing with reliable detection capabilities, KEYENCE has developed a durable photoelectric sensor that will provide lasting detection in the harshest of environments.
