Photoelectric sensors


FW Series line of photoelectric sensors now includes DC models with extended sensing ranges. Offered in diffuse with background suppression and polarized retro-reflective models, the IP67-rated sensors feature round all metal housings with 30mm mounting bases fitted with an M12 quick-disconnect and easily replace standard 30mm mount rectangular photoelectric sensors.


The FW series diffuse with background suppression sensors are available with NPN or PNP light-on outputs. Available models include fixed sensing distances up to 600mm; adjustable models sense distances from 50mm to 800mm. FW diffuse photoelectric sensor prices start at $59.


The FW series polarized retro-reflective photoelectric sensors are available with either PNP or NPN light-on or dark-on outputs and feature models with a fixed sensing distance of 0.1 to 15 meters. FW sensors include one round reflector; additional reflectors can be purchased separately. FW series retro-reflective sensor prices start at $55.


Backed by a one-year warranty, the FW series photoelectric sensors are CE, RoHS and cULus compliant, are in stock and available for same-day shipping.
