LX Series


  • Generates a multiple-beam infrared pattern for extraordinary sensitivity to small objects
  • Detects objects as small as 5.6 mm and extremely flat objects that pass anywhere through the light screen
  • Responds in 0.8 to 3.2 milliseconds—faster than comparable products, even at its slowest response speed
  • Enables automated systems to operate at peak efficiency
  • Ideal for die-protection (part ejection verification), small part, parcel handling and sorting by height
  • Available in 67, 143 or 295 mm lengths and two sensing ranges: 100 to 200 mm and 300 mm to 2 m
  • Features rugged silver anodized housing with IP65 rating
  • Uses integrated T-slot mounting channel for unique mounting flexibility

LX12:3.2 milliseconds ON-time; 8.5 milliseconds OFF-time (5 milliseconds OFF-delay)
Minimum Object Detection SizeSmallest diameter rod that can be detected in sensing range: 5.6 mm (short range) or 9.5 mm (standard-range), depending on model.
IndicatorsEmitter, 2 LED indicators:Green and Red
Green ON steady:power ON
Green OFF:emitter hardware failure
Red ON steady:reduced range
Red OFF:normal range
Red flashing:emitter hardware failure
Receiver, 2 LED indictors:Yellow and bicolor green/red
Yellow ON steady:output conducting
Yellow OFF:output not conducting
Green ON steady:normal range
Red ON steady:reduced range
Red flashing:receiver hardware failure
ConstructionAluminum housing, polystyrene plastic endcaps, acrylic lens window
Environmental RatingIEC IP65
Connections5-conductor (with drain) attached PVC cable or 150 mm pigtail with 5-pin Euro-style quick-disconnect fitting, depending on model. QD cables are ordered separately.
Operating ConditionsTemperature:-20° to +70° C
Relative humidity:90% @ 50° C (non-condensing)
Application Notesi) The best sensing resolution occurs within the center 80 percent of the sensing area, between the emitter and receiver.

ii) Low-profile packages can be reliably detected.

iii) Outputs are energized whenever the light screen is interrupted.

iv) Successive parts musts be spaced up to 12 milliseconds (LX12) for reliable detection.
