T8 Series



  • Features EZ-BEAM technology, with specially designed optics and electronics for reliable sensing without adjustment
  • Ideal for presence sensing in small area previously accessible only to remote sensors and fiber optic cable
  • Features T-style plastic housing with 8 mm threaded lens
  • Can replace range-limited 8 mm threaded-mount inductive proximity sensors
  • Offers 10 to 30V dc supply voltage with NPN or PNP output, depending on model
  • Offers visible sensing beam for easy alignment
  • Available in dark- or light-operate models
  • Offered in opposed mode wth 2 m range and diffuse mode with 50 or 100 mm range
