Series 61 Photoelectric Sensors for Machine Builders

Series 61 photoelectric sensors enable machine builders to benefit from the powerful optical performance without the cost traditionally associated with high optical power. These UL and cUL listed photoelectric sensors are available in DC models with our exclusive 4-in-1™ output and AC/DC models with SPDT relay output, for an all-in-one solution that satisfies any number of application needs. Easily accessible controls simplify set-up and adjustments, and color-coded labels make it easy to identify a given sensor’s sensing mode.

“Series 61 has a rugged IP67 industry standard housing style to make it a simple drop-in replacement in many applications, while delivering optical performance that is anything but ‘standard’ - in fact these sensors deliver the best optical performance available today in sensors with similar housing styles,” says Michael Turner, Product Manager, Pepperl+Fuchs. “And because each sensor has a one-piece design and comes standard with a multifunction timer, sensitivity adjustment, and the choice of a 4-in-1 output or SPDT relay, selecting the right sensor for the application has never been easier.”

The 4-in-1 output automatically sinks or sources depending upon the load detected, simplifying set-up while reducing costs and stock requirements by delivering four output options from a single photoelectric sensor. Both 4-in-1 output models and SPDT output models include standard diffuse mode with a 1 m or 4 m sensing range, diffuse with background suppression mode with a 500 mm or 2 m sensing range, polarized retroreflective mode with an 18 m sensing range and thru-beam mode with a 60 m sensing range.

AC/DC versions with SPDT relay output are capable of switching up to 3 amps. For the harshest applications, Series 61 photoelectric sensors are also available in fiber optic versions where the sensing range is dependent on the fiber cable. The fiber optic fitting is suitable for use with all “universal” glass fiber optic cables.

AC/DC Series 61 connection options include a 2 meter fixed cable or a 5-pin, Mini-style quick-disconnect. DC Series 61 connection options include a 2 meter fixed cable or a 4-pin, M12 micro-style quick-disconnect. Each sensor can be mounted via front and rear slots, rear dovetail guide or M30 x 1.5 mounting base. Additionally, cabled sensor models provide 0.5 in. – 14 NPT internal threads for use with flexible conduit.

Series 61 sensors are an ideal solution for over-the-conveyor package detection in material handling industries, as well as automotive part positioning. Additional applications where these sensors shine are industrial door control, palletizing, reliable parts detection in hot environments, overhead conveyors and small or slotted object detection.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications.
