Photoelectric sensors
W27-3

Your Benefits

  • Quick and easy commissioning due to a highly visible red PinPoint LED
  • PinPoint technology can replace laser photoelectric proximity sensors in some applications. No laser safety regulations and a longer operating life due to PinPoint technology
  • Resistant to ambient light, optical reflections, and crosstalk from other photoelectric devices
  • Less contamination due to high operating reserves, reducing downtime
  • Resistant to vibrations, reducing downtime
  • Operation in harsh environments with temperatures as low as –40 °C
  • IO-Link provides easy data access from the PLC
  • Quick and easy configuration

Overview

The W27 family is designed for harsh industrial environments where it copes easily with heavy vibrations, shocks and extreme temperature fluctuations. The photoelectric proximity sensor is a leader in its class, especially through its reliable detection at long ranges. A sensor with PinPoint LED or a laser photoelectric proximity sensor is available for detection of small targets. The retro-reflective and through-beam versions reduce downtime due to high operating reserves. A diverse range of features further enhance application-specific functionality including, Teach or potentiometer adjustment, time delays, front lens heating, IO-Link, ASi, and universal voltage DC or AC/DC.
