Omron Automation and Safety Transparent-object detection

The E3S-DB photoelectric sensor detects transparent objects regardless of changes in materials, shapes and types. Suitable for the food and packaging industry, the device is rated IP69K for resistance to high pressure and high-temperature water washdown and has been certified detergent-resistant by Ecolab. The sensor combines existing transparent-object-detection technology with additional lensing and slits to collimate the reflected light. Stray refracted light is filtered out for consistent transparent-object detection. Double slits inside the sensor prevent incorrect operation. Connectivity options include models with pre-wired 2-m cable, built-in M12 connector and M12 connector on a pigtail lead.
