Leuze Extremely Tough 328 Series Sensors

Leuze electronic is releasing new cylindrical sensors for particularly difficult conditions.

The new 328 series is based on the optical platform of the well-known stan-dard 318B series and, thanks to the metal sleeve in the housing, offers hig-her mechanical strength than the standard product made of high-quality plastic. The operating principles available in the new series, which range from throughbeam photoelectric sensors to retro-reflective photoelectric sensors to light scanners with sensitivity adjustment via teach button, combine all relevant designs with cable or plug connection. An adjustable retro-reflective photoelectric sensor model with polarization filter for particularly tricky applications is also included in the product line.

With ranges of up to 15 m (throughbeam photoelectric sensors), 6 m (retro-reflective photoelectric sensors) and 1 m (light scanners), they fit perfectly in a variety of applications for object detection in materials handling and packaging technology. The cylindrical sensor is very well-received; these sensors are especially popular for integration into constricted environments and into assemblies in transport systems or other machines. In many pro-duction processes and internal transport systems, these optical sensors are used for the detection of objects and thereby control processes or partial steps. The highly-visible light spot facilitates alignment and two antivalent outputs expand the application options.
