Photoelectric sensor in robust metal housing

July 10, 2008

The OG-Cube photoelectric sensor from ifm efector inc. provides high optical performance in a compact metal housing. The sensor offers reliable position detection in industrial applications such as conveying, packaging, material handling and automotive manufacturing. The OG-Cube’s robust metal housing withstands harsh industrial conditions. The sensor features metal M18 mounting threads that will not strip during mounting and its standard M12 connector resists high torquing, providing quick wiring. List price for the efector OG-Cube starts at $69.00. Bright LEDs indicate operating status (power and output) making troubleshooting in applications fast and simple. A powerful visible red light source with a large spot diameter enables easy alignment for easy setup. The sensors are designed to provide long sensing ranges that increase the distance between the sensor and the target, preventing physical damage from fast-moving targets.
