Everything about autosen


Through-beam sensor from autosen with M12x1 metal thread – receiver with 4 m range and adjustable light-on and dark-on mode Through-beam sensors feature very long detection ranges since they consist of two separate components: transmitter and receiver. The optical receiver AO012 from autosen switches reliably up to a range of 4 m. The light beam is a one-way beam and thus highly resistant to dust, steam or lens soiling. This guarantees high excess gain. The AO012 receiver has an M12 metal thread design and is combined with the respective transmitter for object detection (autosen AO011).

Tried-and-tested millions of times in daily use. Photoelectric sensors from autosen are manufactured in Germany according to highest quality demands with regard to robustness, noise immunity and reliability. Save up to 50 % compared to other manufacturers, benefit from the 30-day right to return and 5-year warranty for our products.
