Photoelectric Sensor Achieves Long-Range Output

Latest News

Ifm efector has equipped its OG cube in a metal housing with a newly developed 2-wire output stage. The minimum leakage current of 1.7 mA enables this photoelectric sensor to be used without issue in normal AC power mains at 20…250 V AC.

Due to a minimum drift when light and dark objects are detected, the sensor achieves long ranges which remain constant even with coloured backgrounds. 

Additionally, the operation of the sensor is colour-independent for grey-scale and black values. A high repeatability as well as fixed ranges for a quick set-up are additional features of this sensor.

The OG cube can be supplied as through-beam sensor, retro-reflective sensor and diffuse reflection sensor with background suppression. In addition, a wide range of mounting accessories are available for universal mounting.
