The 5-Way Adjustable Limit Switch Style Sensors are designed for 10-30 VDC operation. The active sensing face of the sensors can be adjusted for front, top, bottom, left, or right facing targets, maximizing installation and operational flexibility. Patented four-corner LEDs guarantee 360-degrees-visibility, enabling users to easily monitor the sensors’ operating and switching state to help keep machines up and running, according to the manufacturer. Category IP68/69K protection ensures robust and reliable operation even under the most extreme conditions and applications, enabling nearly unlimited application. The sensors are available with sensing ranges of 15, 20, 30 and 40 mm, as well as flush-mountable 15 and 20 mm versions. They provide reliable operation in temperatures ranging from -25 to 85 degrees C. Three-wire DC, four-wire DC and NAMUR models are available.
