The new generation of photoelectric sensors in the BOS 6K series from Balluff has 31.5 x 19.5 x 10.8 mm dimensions. Its 70 variants provide a functional product range from start to finish with red light and laser versions (class 1) for very demanding jobs. The range features impressive precision, range and function reserves. Diffuse sensors, through-beam sensors, reflection light sensors with and without background suppression and analog distance sensors, each with the flexibility to be configured for light/dark switching, are a few examples.
Thanks to its particularly high IP 67 & IP 69K degrees of protection, a lens surface of PMMA and Ecolab approval, the sensor can be used in the food industry as well. All of the variants feature teach buttons with tactile feedback. If the installed sensor is difficult to access, they can also be taught whatever the interesting aspect is using a remote connection. The sensor functions can also be configured during ongoing operation. Two LEDs indicate the operating state, the function reserves and the switching state. Durable metal plugs ensure there are no outages under high mechanical loads.
