C12 Series: save space, keep performance

Contrinex 11/14/2014

C12 SeriesThe new C12 series of photoelectric sensors offers reflex, through-beam and background suppression types in a subminiature cubic housing. The very small dimensions of these sensors enable installation wherever space and optical opening are limited. Despite their size, all C12 sensors have long sensing ranges. In particular, the background suppression type has a sensing range up to 120 mm and sensitivity adjustment by a 3-turn potentiometer.

Your advantages:

-Subminiature housing: 7.7 x 21.8 x 13.5 mm3 or 7.7 x 27.5 x 13.5 mm3
-Small visible light spot thanks to red pinpoint led
-Long sensing ranges
-Background suppression up to 120 mm with 3-turn potentiometer
-Excellent background suppression characteristics
-45° angle cable outlet for easy installation

Application: robotics

The C12 series is perfect for installation on moveable parts in any robotics application. The small visible light spot and long sensing ranges mean that every moveable part, however small or inaccessible, can detect its own position or the presence of an object.
