Sensor kit with mounting bracket and reflector

The W280-2 consists of three high-performance sensor types – energetic photoelectric proximity sensor, photoelectric retro-reflective sensor and through-beam photoelectric sensor. The AC/DC devices (-2Hxxxx) are compliant with EN 61000-6-3 (electromagnetic interference for “residential, commercial and light-industrial environments”) which makes the sensor especially suitable for door and gates areas. In other branches the fast install kit provides a rotatable M12 connector, cable or screw terminal connection which offer a quick and easy setup even in space-restricted conditions. Devices with potentiometer and light/dark switching provide application flexibility. In addition, these sensors are available in DC and AC/DC versions.
