AutomationDirect Wide-area sensors
Micro Detectors (MD) multi-beam, through-beam sensors with emitter and receiver elements are used to detect the presence of any object by sensing the light beam intensity returning from the receiver. The area sensors have an IEC IP67 ingress protection rating. The wide-area sensors are available in basic and advanced versions. CX0 series basic area sensors have a sensing distance of up to 6 m and a detection height up to 320 mm. CX2 series advanced area sensors also have a sensing distance of up to 6 m with a detection height of up to 960 mm. They offer analog outputs and a blanking function.
