When you think of spring cleaning, you probably don't think of your work space. And if you work with sensors, you probably don't think of spring cleaning! Using sensors in food and beverage applications makes it necessary to clean the conveyors with water jets, as well as alkaline foam cleaning products, chlorine-containing foam and acidic foam disinfectants specifically for the food industry.
Personally, I don't want any of that in my food! But if you want your equipment to work right, you need to keep it clean, so you need wash-down proof sensors like the PA18 series from Carlo Gavazzi Sensors.
The PA18 series.. is part of a family of inexpensive general purpose diffuse reflective sensors in industrial standard 18 mm cylindrical ABS housing. The sensors are useful in applications where high accuracy detection as well as small size is required.
Compact housing and high power LED for excellent performance-size ratio. The potentiometer used for adjustment of the sensitivity makes the sensors highly flexible. The output type is NPN or PNP and the output switching function is NO and NC.
