Widen the Gap
OPB856Z series wide-gap optical sensor includes an emitter-sensor pair, LED, and a phototransistor that operates over distances to 12 in. Applications include non-contact interruptive object sensing, equipment security and machine safety. Components are mounted in threaded color-coded housings. The LED (white housing) and phototransistor (black housing) are designed for panel mount through a 12-mm (0.473 in.) hole.
