This Banner SM312FP photoelectric sensor has a M18 threaded-mount housing and an infrared LED sensing beam with an 650 nm wavelength, and is intended for use with a plastic fiber optic assembly (not included). The sensor accepts 10-30 VDC input through its 2 m length PVC-covered 4-wire cable and has bipolar (NPN and PNP) output. The sensor has potentiometer-adjustable tuning, an alignment indicator, and a light/dark operate selector switch. Its sensing range is dependent on the fiber optic sensing mode chosen. The thermoplastic housing is durable and the sensor has an operating temperature range of -20 to +70 degrees C. It meets the Ingress Protection (IP) 67 standard for protection from water and dust and is Underwriters Laboratories Recognized (UR), Canadian Standards Association (CSA) certified, and European Conformity (CE) compliant for quality assurance. This plastic fiber optic-capable sensor is suitable for use in automation applications such as in manufacturing and packaging in a wet environment.
Banner engineering manufactures and distributes photo eyes, sensors, safety switches, and other related products for industrial and process automation. The company, founded in 1966, is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN.
