Sensors for the Washdown Area

Sensors for the Washdown Area

The sensors for the washdown area are ideal for use in spraying applications in the food, beverage and packaging industries. The high-quality stainless steel 316L housing makes them robust and corrosion-resistant.
Thanks to the high IP69K degree of protection, the sensors can be integrated into and on systems where they can withstand high-pressure cleaning at up to 100 bar and water temperatures of up to 80 °C. The sensors are also ECOLAB certified and therefore resistant to aggressive cleaning agents.

Photoelectronic Sensors in 2K Miniature Design

  • Stainless steel 316L housing (1.4404/V4A) for high corrosion resistance
  • High thermal resistance
  • Withstands intensive and frequent cleaning – even with high-pressure cleaners up to 100 bar and 80 °C water temperature thanks to IP69K degree of protection
  • High mechanical stability and resistance against shocks and impacts
  • Temperature range from –40 °C for use in deep-freeze warehouses

Photoelectronic sensors use light to detect or count objects contactlessly and to measure distances using light. The high-quality 2K miniature design in stainless steel 316L (1.4404/V4A) is available as a reflex sensor with background suppression, long-range laser distance sensor, energetic reflex sensor, through-beam sensor, universal retro-reflex sensor and retro-reflex sensor for transparent objects. Depending on the intended use, different types of light, such as blue light, red light or red laser light, are available.

The photoelectronic sensors in 2K format are part of the PNG//smart family. They have an aligned optical axis and offer smart communication via IO-Link and condition monitoring.

Long-Range Laser Distance Sensors P2PY

  • High-pressure cleaner resistant up to 100 bar and 80 °C water temperature thanks to IP69K protection
  • High mechanical robustness thanks to laser-welded housing
  • Temperature range from −40 °C for use in deep-freeze warehouses
  • Food-safe materials with FDA compliance
  • Resistant to cleaning agents thanks to stainless steel 316L
  • Chemically resistant plastic parts for high chemical resistance 
  • Non-destructive and captive laser labeling for permanent visibility

Long-range laser distance sensors with wintec are high-performance transit time sensors that work with red laser. As a result, they cover large working ranges and reliably detect objects even at great distances. 

The latest wintec generation with DS technology delivers precise results up to 10 meters and sets itself apart in particular by the fact that it reliably detects objects regardless of their color or surface condition, such as gloss – even in extreme inclined positions.

Fork Sensors P1HJ

  • Corrosion-free stainless steel 316L housing in washdown design with ECOLAB
  • Collimated laser beam (0.35 mm diameter over the entire fork width) for detecting even the smallest parts (40 µm)
  • Detection of transparent objects
  • High switching frequency (10 kHz)
  • Teach-in key and external teach-in

The photoelectronic fork sensors work with a fine laser beam according to the emitter-receiver principle and thus enable reliable detection of objects – even of transparent or very small parts. During installation, the visible red laser light enables easy alignment of the sensor to the object, the emitter and receiver are permanently installed and do not have to be aligned with each other. The flexible fork widths between 50 and 220 mm enable versatile use of the fork sensors.
