Our broad range of photoelectric sensors is aimed at all automation solutions where noncontact object detection can be utilized. The wide variety of different operating principles, models, sizes and specifications means that the best possible sensor can always be found for the relevant application and all conditions that occur in practice can be met. In automation, photoelectric sensors in general provide all the benefits of fast and noncontact detection. They essentially consist of an emitter and a receiver unit. If an object moves into the beam path, for example, the receiver responds to changes in the amount of light received within milliseconds and converts the optical signal emitted by the emitter into an electrical switching signal. The photoelectric sensors operate with visible red light, invisible infrared light or powerful laser light as required.
The future of photoelectric sensors
Market requirements and technological developments give rise to innovations in photoelectrics. Pepperl+Fuchs is the first manufacturer to use the principle of direct light propagation time measurement method with pulse ranging technology (PRT) in commercial industrial applications. Used to calculate the sensing distances to objects, PRT is far superior to other available processes. This important trend in photoelectrics can therefore be summarized by the maxim “Sensing by Ranging”, i.e., the future belongs to measuring photoelectric sensors. Another focus of attention at Pepperl+Fuchs is the efficient connection of sensors to the control hierarchy via IO-Link for the utilization of intelligent sensor functions. Take a look at our impressive selection of noncontact photoelectric sensors. You are sure to find the right one for you. Perfectly adapted customer-specific optical solutions are also available.
