Offer mounting flexibility, 360-degree status indicators
The Tru-Vue series photoelectric sensors are compact, low cost and feature versatile side-mount or snout-mount options to satisfy various applications needs. They also boast highly-visible, 360-degree LED indicators allowing for status indication in all directions and from poor vantage points. The sensors are suited for material handling, conveyor and assembly applications and can be surface mounted or mounted like 18-mm cylindrical sensors by the threaded nose. With their compact housing and small 29-mm housing depth, they are flexible enough to be mounted in places where conventional 18-mm cylindrical sensors cannot. The enhanced status LEDs provide several diagnostic functions beyond just power and output status.
