Sensor Series Detects Objects at Large Ranges

The new 36 sensor series from Leuze detects objects even at large operating ranges, with manufacturers and operators of highly automated systems benefiting from the range's cost-optimized design. By DA Editor / 16 May 2022

Leuze has developed the new 36 sensor series; a range of products designed with reliability and accuracy in mind.

Thanks to their detection performance, the sensors are suitable for the demanding requirements in intralogistics, packaging systems and the automotive industry. They detect objects with different optical properties – even at a great distance, with vibration, ambient lighting or soiling.

The cost-optimized 36 series is an economically attractive solution for  system manufacturers and operators, especially in the case of highly automated systems with a large number of sensors.

Flexible Implementation

Leuze offers the sensors, which are certified to protection class IP67, with a variety of different operating principles. They are available as sensors with background suppression (with an operating range of up to 2.5 meters), as retro-reflective photoelectric sensors (up to 17 meters) or as throughbeam photoelectric sensors (up to 80 meters). The high-performance sensor design provides an extremely high function reserve. This ensures that objects are reliably detected even if, for example, sources of interference are present.

Users can also request retro-reflective photoelectric sensors for detecting objects with depolarizing properties, e.g. for film-wrapped pallets. The sensors of the 36 series therefore cover an enormous range of applications.

Choice of Connections

The sensors are available both with M12 connection sockets and with different ready-made connection cables as well as matching mounting accessories. This means that integration is always guaranteed, even in existing systems. In addition, all common switching logics are also supported: NPN and PNP switching as well as light and dark switching.
