Is it time to update your modular photoelectric sensor?

Posted by Aaron English on Thu, Feb 12, 2015

How would you like to optimize your sensing capabilities while simplifying your selection process?

Our MP series modular photoelectric sensors provide a unique way to solve applications. Each sensor consists of three separately sold components—a head, a base, and a receptacle. These different combinations offer a wide array of capabilities. With a variety to choose from, you have the ability to customize a sensor that's best for your application.


However, purchasing individual components, keeping stock, and selecting sensors that can be adapted into future applications can sometimes be a difficult task. If you are considering modular photoelectric sensors or looking to update some you may already be using, you should consider Series 61 photoelectric sensors (PDF, 1.8 MB).

With the Series 61 photoelectric sensors, choosing the correct model is simple. These sensors pack all of the great features of the MP series into one component instead of three. Depending upon what suits your application best, you have a choice of diffuse, retroreflective, thru-beam, or fiber optics. And the one-piece design offers DC 4-in-1 outputs (NPN/PNP/LO/DO) as well as AC/DC SPDT relay outputs. Also, a multifunction timer and sensitivity adjustment comes standard.
