Wenglor Photoelectric sensors

April 22, 2021 – AutomationDirect has added a new line of laser sensors. Wenglor dark and shiny object detection photoelectric sensors use blue light technology to detect objects other photoelectric sensors cannot see or see objects that get detected multiple times erroneously.

They come in either 50x20x50mm or 32x12x16mm body sizes with an M12 or M8 quick-disconnect.

These sensors can detect dark and shiny objects up to 400mm away and are IO-Link V1.1 compatible.

Also added are four new models to the Wenglor performance line and five laser sensors to the discrete distance detection group.

These new Wenglor sensors start at $91.00 and have a 1-year warranty.
