IFM Electronic has added the O7 photoelectric sensors to its opto range.

The low profile of the O7 opto range is ideal for tight spots: while the overall dimensions of 15 x 20 x 9mm mean the sensor takes up very little volume, the sensing axis means the front-to-back sensor depth of only 9mm gives more room for manoeuvre.

The small visible light spot allows the detection of small objects with the highest precision.

With their fixed setting, the sensors are ready for operation immediately after installation.

The O7 sensors are available as diffuse reflection sensors with background suppression, retro-reflective sensors with polarisation filter or as through-beam transmitters or receivers.

IFM Electronic offers the background-suppressed diffuse variants with three fixed ranges of 30, 50 and 100mm.

Retroreflective units work up to 1m, and 1.5m is achieved with the separate transmitter/receiver through-beam.

In each case the light/dark switching function is provided by the unit selection.

Some units feature a light spot diameter as small as 2.5mm, making it almost laser like without the cost or safety concerns of a laser.

Reliable operation is ensured in industrial conditions with functions guaranteed from -25 to +60C.

The O7 photoelectric sensors are sealed to IP65.

Connection to the sensor is made using a standard M8 connector on a short 200mm cable for ease of access.

The vast range of accessories ensures quick and flexible integration into the system and therefore quick installations and alignment.

ifm electronic specialises in the application of advanced electronic technology to produce innovative and effective solutions for industrial control applications.

Products include flow sensors; pressure transmitters and switches; temperature switches and transmitters; capacitive, inductive and photoelectric proximity sensors; and a full range of AS-i I/O modules and masters.

Details of ifm electronic's products and services may be obtained from our website, which has been carefully designed to provide the fastest, easiest way of finding exactly the right sensor for almost any application. Better still, once the correct sensor has been identified, the site also allows the data sheet to be downloaded almost instantly and, for most sensors, it even provides an interactive animated guide to achieving optimum adjustment.
