Laser sensor in cylindrical M18 housing

Your Benefits

  • Laser sensor in cylindrical M18 housing lowers installation costs
  • Time-saving installation and commissioning due to clearly visible light spot
  • Laser class 1 does not require any enhanced safety measures or labeling, which lowers installation costs
  • Quick response time ensures reliable object detection at high speeds, which increases the machine's throughput


Laser sensor in cylindrical M18 housing

The V18 Laser family of photoelectric sensors offers modern laser technology with a small, highly visible light spot that detects small parts and offers precise sensing. These laser class 1 sensors provide long sensing distances and short response times.

Yellow and green indicator LEDs ensure easy mounting, commissioning, adjustment and maintenance. Sensitivity can be set in several ways - either manually via a teach-in pushbutton or electronically using control input C.
