SUNX EQ-30 Series Adjustable Range Reflective Amplifier Built-in Photoelectric Sensors Distributors
EQ-30 Series

EQ-30 Series

The EQ-30 series of photoelectric sensors provides a compact body with adjustable long-range detection up to a 1m distance. All types are IP67 rated for use in the most demanding environments.

By incorporating a two-segment photodiode as the receiving element, detection can be made regardless of color or background. A built-in interference function provides the ability to mount two sensors in close proximity or even facing each other.

This helps to simplify sensor mounting and enhances detection ability. A mechanical two-turn adjuster is provided along with a useful indicator that shows the set distance at a glance. Options include M12 quick-disconnect versions as well a dual-output EQ-34W, which allows for the setting of upper and lower limits for your application.

SUNX EQ-500 Series Adjustable Range Reflective Amplifier Built-in Multi-Voltage Photoelectric Sensors Distributors
EQ-500 Series

EQ-500 Series

The EQ-500 series of photoelectric sensors provides a long-range diffuse reflective solution that is suitable for applications where it is not feasible to get close to the sensing object. The sensor is impervious to changes in an object's angle, gloss, or even color, so you get an accurate detection every time.

Built in an IP-67 rated enclosure, the EQ-500 series is also good for use in harsh environments. The sensing range is easily adjustable to a maximum of 2.5m (1m version also available).

There are two main product types available:

  • Multi-voltage type
  • DC-voltage type
SUNX EX-10 Series Ultra-Slim Amplifier Built-in Photoelectric Sensors Distributors
EX-10 Series

EX-10 Series Version 2

The EX-10 series is one of the smallest sensors on the market today. The ultra small size allows for mounting in the smallest areas. The size is achieved by locating all of the electronics and controls in an in-line amplifier. A bright 2-color indicator on the sensor head allows for quick determination of the sensor state.

The EX-10 series is also equipped with a 0.5ms response time for high-speed detection and an IP-67 rated housing for wash-down environments. The mounting options available include a front sensing type as well as a side sensing type. Each type has two, metal reinforced M3 mounting holes for stable sensor placement. All types are available as either Light ON or Dark ON and PNP or NPN.

SUNX EX-Z Series Ultra-Miniature Amplifier Built-in Photoelectric Sensors Distributors

EX-Z Series

The world's thinnest (Among photoelectric sensors with built-in amplifier, as of June 2015) sensor dimension of 3 mm 0.118 in has been achieved by utilizing 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.

A slit is provided on the front side of the main sensor body. The sensor can detect a Ø0.3 mm Ø0.012 in object (the smallest-object sensing capability in the industry) without using an optional slit.

SUNX EX-20 Series Ultra-Compact Photoelectric Sensors Distributor

EX-20 Series

The EX-20 series reaches the pinnacle of sensor miniaturization. By fabricating the photodiode and the A/D conversion circuit on the same chip, SUNX has achieved one of the smallest built-in amplifier sensors in the world. With integrated sensitivity adjustment, the EX-20 series is great for use as an all-purpose sensor. Even though the sensor is extremely small, the sensing distance is not compromised. Up to a 2m detection distance is possible with the thrubeam type, 200mm with the retro-reflective type, and 160mm for the diffuse reflective type.

A visible red beam spot allows for easy confirmation of alignment. Also, the LED used in the EX-20 series provides a high-power, narrow beam that can produce a spot as small as 1mm in diameter. This is great for the detection of small objects such as chip components or wires.

SUNX EX-30 Series Amplifier Built-in Threaded Miniature Photoelectric Sensors Distributors

EX-30 Series Version 2

All you need to do is to make a Ø4 mm Ø0.157 in hole where you would like to stop or check the object (Ø6 mm Ø0.236 in hole for reflective type). Furthermore, the center of the sensing axis is the same as the center of the mounting hole, which makes it much easier to set the sensing position. The EX-30 series achieves reductions in power consumption of up to 65 %. These sensors contribute to environmental friendliness.

The EX-30 series achieves long distance sensing. [thru-beam type: 500 mm 19.685 in (EX-33(-PN): 800 mm 31.496 in), reflective type: 50 mm 1.969 in.]

The same high response speed of 0.5 ms as fiber sensor amplifiers is provided, making these sensors ideal for sensing small objects, counting objects that are moving quickly and positioning items such as circuit boards.

Panasonic EX-40 Series Amplifier Built-in Convergent Reflective Photoelectric Sensors Distributors

EX-40 Series

Due to convergent distance sensing, the color or material of the object has almost no effect. Further, the background also has very little effect, enabling stable sensing. The spot-beam type EX-43T is incorporated with an OFF-delay timer. The variable OFF-delay timer is useful for detecting a printed circuit board regardless of small holes, cutouts, or electronic parts on it.

It can be installed in a limited space. Even in a limited sensing area, the sensor is not affected by small perforations or unevenness. It is suitable for presence detection. The sensor does not detect even a specular object 100 mm 3.937 in, or more, away from the sensing surface (with EX-43).

Panasonic MQ-W Series Amplifier Built-in Triple Beam Adjustable Range Reflective Photoelectric Sensors Distributors

MQ-W Series

Adjustable range reflective type sensor can detect white or black object at the same distance. Therefore, the sensor can even detect individual objects that are mixed with black objects or objects of various colors that were hard for the diffuse reflective type sensor to detect. (However, when the background is specular, it may be necessary to change the angle of the sensor.)

Adjustable range reflective type sensor dose not detect objects beyond the set range. For this reason, malfunction does not occur even if there are moving machines or people passing by in the background.

Adjustable range reflective type sensor detects the distance by the angle, not by the light receiving intensity. Even if the lens surface is soiled by dust or any powdery material, there is little variation of sensing range. In addition, the sensor stably detects approaching objects at a fixed distance because the distance is sensed by the angle of received light.

SUNX EX-F1 Series Tube-Mountable Amplifier Built-in Liquid Level Detection Sensors Distributor
EX-F1 Series

The EX-F1 is a liquid level sensor with an integrated amplifier, thus there is no need to install a separate amplifier. Just attach it to a tube with two tying bands. The position can be easily changed with the release lever even after mounting, so that there is no need to cut the tying bands.

Either Light-ON or Dark-ON can be selected by a switch. This is useful to check the operation during installation because it forces the output to be turned ON or OFF even without the liquid being inside the pipe. The built-in output indicator allows for quick verification of the output condition.

SUNX EX-F70/EX-F60 Series Amplifier Built-in Leak Detection Sensors Distributors
EX-F70/F-60 Series

Using a capillary effect, the sensor utilizes the change in refractive index to detect small leaks and viscous liquids. The built-in amplifier sensor offers a compact design, and is available in general purpose (water detection) and chemical-resistant types.

A convenient LED indicator allows for simple verification of fault conditions. There is no need for sensitivity adjustments, and two simple mounting bracket styles facilitate simple installation.

SUNX EZ-10 Series Water Detection Sensors Distributor
EZ-10 Series

The EZ-10 series is a reliable and versatile water detection sensor. The powerful beam of the EZ-10 allows for the beam to pass through translucent containers (PFA tanks, etc.) as well as opaque containers (shampoo bottles, etc.). It is also possible to set the sensitivity so that water drops, bubbles in the water, or froth on the water surface are not detected.

Several sensors can be mounted adjacently by using optional slit masks. A quick-connect version is available for simple connection and disconnection of the sensor. Also, Light-ON or Dark-ON operation can be selected. The sensor can be hosed down because of its IP67 construction and the non-corrosive stainless steel sensor mounting bracket.
