ifm efector has equipped its OG cube in a robust metal housing with a newly developed 2-wire output stage.
Because of the minimum leakage current of 1.7 mA the photoelectric sensor can be used without problem in normal AC power mains at 20...250 V AC.
The sensor is the optimum choice for a severe industrial environment. The powerful technology in a compact and robust housing provides high flexibility when used in adverse applications where space is restricted.
Thanks to a minimum drift when light and dark objects are detected the sensor achieves long ranges which remain constant even with coloured backgrounds. Furthermore, the operation of the sensor is colour-independent for grey-scale and black values. A high repeatability as well as fixed ranges for a quick set-up are positive features of this sensor.
The OG cube can be supplied as through-beam sensor, retro-reflective sensor and diffuse reflection sensor with background suppression. In addition, a wide range of mounting accessories is available for universal mounting.
