Type 2K Wenglor photoelectronic sensors

Thursday, 02 December, 2021 | Supplied by: Treotham Automation Pty Ltd


Type 2K Wenglor photoelectronic sensors are the latest additions to the PNG//smart product series from Treotham.

With robust stainless steel 316L housing and IP69K protection, the sensors are designed to withstand intensive high-pressure cleaning up to 100 bar at temperatures up to 80°C, aggressive cleaning agents, coolants and lubricants, as well as mechanical influences and corrosion.

The sensors are able to measure distances, detect objects and communicate intelligently via IO-Link. The miniature design, which can be easily integrated into any system, is available to users in six functional principles and three light sources.

In the food and packaging industries, production facilities must be regularly cleaned with high pressure and aggressive cleaning agents. The high requirements in washdown areas also apply to the sensors installed in the systems. The 2K series with stainless steel 316L housing (1.4404/V4A) meets these requirements thanks to its high IP69K protection class and ECOLAB certificate.

Mounted in a compact miniature housing (35.5 × 18.5 × 17 mm), the photoelectronic sensors are also suitable for applications in mechanical and plant engineering, eg, milling machines.

Thanks to their robust design, the sensors are also resistant to coolants and lubricants.

They also have PNG//smart properties: a calibrated switching point and an aligned optical axis are designed to ensure precise photoelectronic performance and easy integration, adjustment and commissioning. Thanks to the laser class 1, which is harmless to the human eye, the small sensors are also suitable for moving system parts such as robot arms. The integrated IO-Link interface also enables intelligent communication and configuration at the push of a button.

The small 2K design is available from Treotham for six functional principles: energetic reflex sensors and reflex sensors with background suppression, universal retro-reflex sensors, retro-reflex sensors for transparent objects, through-beam sensors and long-range laser distance sensors are all now available in stainless steel 316L. Three light sources are available: red light, blue light and laser light.
