With the 412B series, Leuze electronic presents a new cylindrical optical sensor which, with its compact, space-saving design, benefits in applications where little installation space is available.
With the 412B series in metal housing, Leuze electronic presents a slim, cylindrical M12 sensor design that is especially well suited for use in tight installation spaces, as occur in, e.g., material handling or in packaging machines. Compared to the previous series, the new series of switching optical sensors for object detection has an even more compact design and is available with various functionality: as throughbeam photoelectric sensor, energetic diffuse reflection sensor and as retro-reflective photoelectric sensor. In addition to improved performance such as operating range, response time and glass optics, laser variants as well as models with NPN switching outputs are available for the throughbeam photoelectric sensors. Focus of the new development was primarily on the simple and intuitive set up use by means of 270° potentiometer.
