The Balluff BOS Q08M series of miniature photoelectric sensors now features a laser through-beam model and a fixed-focus version for demanding positioning tasks.

With a Class 1 rating, the laser through-beam sensor detects small parts down to 0.28mm.

The sensor features a tightly bundled laser beam and a working range of up to 3m.

The Fixfocus version is based on the latest pinpoint technology and has a fixed sensing range of 50mm.

The directed light beam permits exact positioning and prevents mutual interference when sensors are located close together.

With a very low grey value shift, the sensor can detects objects regardless of their colour, shape and surface composition.

Objects outside the detection range are ignored.

The laser through-beam sensor has a normally open function with a PNP output.

The Fixfocus version is available with NPN or PNP output, light-on or dark-on switching and with cable or pigtail.

A three-pin M8 connector is also available.

A clamp for fast, flush-mount positioning of the sensors in aluminium profiles has also just been released.

The holder can be inserted into the slot from above and fixed in place by turning a screw.

With its bombproof attachment, the sensors can be placed in spaces that were previously limited to fork sensors.
