PET sensor

Article-PET sensor

The co. releases its PET bottle detection sensor E3ZM-B, a retroreflective photoelectric sensor in SUS316L housing, for accurate PET bottle detection. Product is designed to withstand the harsh conditions associated with chemical and detergent washdowns in food and beverage production. Housed in a moisture proof, 316-L stainless steel enclosure that meets IP69K standards for high-temperature, high-pressure washdown requirements, the sensor has a long working life that eliminates downtime to service and replace sensors and also improves productivity, the co. says. Setup is easy with a one-touch teaching button. Simple red, yellow and green lights indicate when object detection is optimized. The sensor's lens automatically adjusts to detect in a dust or dirt contaminated environment using Omron's unique AC3 (Automatic Compensation Control for Contamination). The E3ZM-B case design protects against wicking or chemical decay of internal components with an armored power cable/housing interface. Their case has no seams to catch stray food particles, and the unit is laser-marked rather than labeled to eliminate the possibility of loose material contaminating the processing area. Models are available for M8 connector or pre-wired requirements.
