Photoelectric sensors - rugged, high performance

Product Announcement from Allen-Bradley / Rockwell Automation

Photoelectric Sensor:
Electronic device recognizing changes in light intensity and converting these changes into a change in output state.

42EF RightSight

When your application requires the durability and performance of a full-featured photoelectric sensor but distances are short and space is tight, take a 90° turn to RightSight photoelectric sensors. RightSight features a smaller, more adaptable package to deliver excellent detection capabilities where size and shape matter. These photoelectric sensors combine universal voltages (24–264 V AC/DC) with short-circuit protection across the full voltage range.

Diffuse, polarized retroreflective, fiber optic, transmitted beam, background suppression and clear object models available.
