Sensors for Food and Beverage Industry

Sensors for Food and Beverage Industry

AutomationDirect's line of food and beverage sensor products includes ac and dc proximity and photoelectric sensors and quick-disconnect sensor cables.

The PFM 12 and PFK 18 mm proximity series are sensors with shielded or unshielded stainless steel housings and M12 quick-disconnect plugs with gold-plated pins. Providing complete overload protection, each series has 10 models available. The PFM series has a standard sensing distance of up to 4 mm and extended distance of up to 8 mm. The PFK series has a standard sensing distance of up to 8 mm and extended distance of up to 12 mm. Models are available in a choice of 10-30V dc PNP or NPN transistor outputs and normally-open or complementary output configurations.

The PFT 30 mm series of proximity sensors are available in four models with sensing ranges up to 22 mm. Models are available with shielded or unshielded housings and normally-open outputs.

The VFK 18 mm and VFT 30 mm series proximity sensors are available with shielded or unshielded stainless steel housings and half-inch micro ac quick-disconnect plugs with gold-plated pins. With complete overload protection, each series provides normally-open 20 to 140V ac outputs.

Magnetic proximity sensors are available in 12 and 18 mm diameters. The shielded 10-30V dc sensors have a sensing range of up to 70 mm and a normally-open output.

Two series of 18 mm food and beverage photoelectric sensors are also available. The FF series photoelectric sensors are available in 30 models and four styles: diffuse, polarized reflective, through-beam and retro-reflective (for transparent objects). Sensing distances range from 100 mm to 20 m. The FFRS series diffuse photoelectric sensors with background suppression are available with adjustable maximum reading distances - 30 to 130 mm and 60 to 100 mm for shiny objects. Sensors are equipped with LED status indicators; yellow indicates output while green indicates teaching function.
