Introduction of Leuze 18B sensor extends the range

July 2014 Sensors & Transducers

Countapulse Controls reports that Leuze has expanded its extensive line of sensors with the recent introduction of the Leuze 18B series, engineered for use in applications involving transparent media.

Compared to its predecessor, the series offers even smaller dimensions in a more robust housing. Benefits include shorter response times, higher switching frequency, improved adjustment of the switching point and a tracking function for extending the cleaning interval.

Engineered using the latest advances in sensor technology, the Leuze 18B series is able to detect fast moving, small, thin and transparent objects such as foils. The major advantage is that this can be accomplished even under extreme environmental conditions, a game changer in industries such as food and beverage and packaging.

The visibility of the light spot and LED display has also been improved, which has simplified both start-up and operation. The optics minimise light beam tolerances to the extent that mounting can be quickly performed without alignment. The electrical connection is established either via the M12 plug or an integrated cable.
