Small, strong, rugged - the ideal sensor for washdown applications

With its special sealing, the G6 Inox product family is particularly resistant to chemicals and washing detergents in washdown applications. The photoelectric sensors are available in different versions for different applications: With background suppression, as through-beam or photoelectric retro-reflective sensors. Complementary outputs enable easy light/dark switching. The compact and rugged housing made of stainless steel 1.4404 (316L) also withstands heavy impacts; the reinforced and coated front screen is highly resistant to scratches. Mounting holes with M3 threads guarantee quick and simple mounting. The black background of the indicator LEDs ensure better visibility.
