- Through beam sensor (transmitter; receiver: AO027) in rectangular design with M8 connector (4-pin)
- Sensing range 10 m
- Easy adjustment due to visible red light
- Insensitive to dust, steam and lens contamination
- Light-on/dark-on mode programmable
DescriptionThe AO026 through beam sensor receiver features an especially compact, rectangular design and very high ranges, irrespective of the colour of the object to be detected.
The AO026’s compact size makes it especially suitable where space is limited. Its sensitivity can be set intuitively via a potentiometer, light-on or dark-on mode can be selected simply by turning a rotary switch, while a clearly delineated, homogeneous spot of visible red light aids precise alignment for exact measurement results as well as reliably preventing interference with other photoelectric sensors nearby, because no scattered light is involved.
The AO026 provides outstanding performance in a practical form and an excellent price-performance ratio.
There is also an alternative version of the AO026, the structurally identical AO004 , with a stainless steel housing and IP69K protection rating. The AO004 is suitable for use in hygiene-sensitive and wet zones.
The transmitter for use with the AO026 through beam sensor is the AO027.
