Photoelectric sensors

Your Benefits

  • Simple design saves time during mounting, adjustment, and maintenance
  • IP69K stainless steel housing has a long service life that withstands wash-down environments, reducing maintenance time and costs
  • Unique touch-teach feature for adjustment purposes and sensor lock/unlock functionality eliminate process faults and reduce commissioning and maintenance time
  • Laser-etched part numbers ensures the part numbers will not be washed off, so the process can be better controlled


The V18V has a chemical and pressure cleaning resistant housing for wash down applications and includes patented touch (smart) teach for foolproof operation. These sensors are field-tested and are able to stand up to harsh environments. The sensors offer ease of use in wash down areas due to corrosion resistant and food grade materials, a wide sensing range and an extended temperature range.

The V18V sensors are certified by ECOLAB and JohnsonDiversey. Their IP 69K enclosure rating makes them ideal for applications in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and packaging industries.
