The world's thinnest** sensor dimension of 3mm has been achieved by utilizing a new semiconductor packaging technology that does not use wire bonding. The small unit size allows installation of sensors in a narrow space where only a conventional fiber sensor head could be installed before. The built-in amplifier also saves on installation space.
* As compared to EX-10 series ** Among photoelectric sensors with built-in amplifier as of June 2015 (survey by our company)
Capable of sensing an extremely small Ø 0.3mm object without optional slit (EX-Z11)
EX-Z photoelectric sensor, capable of sensing an extremely small Ø 0.3mm object without optional slit (EX-Z11□)
A slit is already provided on the front side of the main sensor body. The sensor can detect a Ø 0.3mm object (the smallest-object sensing capability in the industry* without using an optional slit.
* Among photoelectric sensors with built-in amplifier, as of June 2015 (survey by our company)
Capability to sense a small Ø 1.0mm object over long distance (EX-Z13□)
The high-brightness 4-element red LED provides strong light emission stably over a long period of time. In spite of the extremely small size, both front sensing and side sensing units can sense a small Ø 1.0mm object over a long distance of 500mm. Since the spotlight is clearly visible, the sensing position can be easily confirmed.
