VS3 Series

Overview

  • Featuring EZ-BEAM technology, with specially designed optics and electronics for reliable sensing without adjustments
  • Offers extremely compact self-contained miniature design
  • Available in retroreflective sensing mode
  • Uses coaxial optics on retroreflective models to eliminate blind areas at close range
  • Accurately detects shiny objects
  • Offers 10 to 30V dc supply voltage with NPN or PNP output, depending on model
  • Available in dark- or light-operate models
  • Features visible sensing beam for easy alignment
