High power LED photoelectric sensor series

High power LED

Provides stable detection and better excess gain

Four element LED

Helps reduce degradation over time

Bright output and stability indicators

For a better viewing of sensor status

Decreased dead zone

Allows for better close range sensing applications

Visible indicators

Indicators visible from any angle


Stable detection

The Z3 Series features a high power LED to provide stable detection, with the thru-beam type sensor offering a 25m sensing distance. This Series is now better equipped to overcome interference from dust and fine particles with an increased margin for light receiving. 

Reduced dead zone

An optimized optical receiver in the diffuse-reflective type successfully minimizes the dead zone in front of making it easier to detect work pieces with a low reflectivity that pass close to the sensor, even in lines that convey work pieces of varying heights.
