Function: RL61-8-4000-Z/115/136

The Series 61 sensor family is a comprehensive product line, offering five sensing modes. Each sensor is equipped with four LEDs that are highly visible from all directions, indicating Power-On, target presence and marginal excess gain. The widely recognized, polycarbonate housing provides a IP67 protection degree rating. Color-coded labels are clearly printed on the housing to easily identify the sensing mode. DC models offer a 4-in-1 output while AC/DC models have a SPDT relay output rated to 3 A. All versions come standard with an integral multifunction timer, sensitivity adjustment and Light-ON/Dark-ON switch. Series 61 sensors are cross-talk protected and have a high degree of resistance to ambient lighting. Each sensor can be mounted via front and rear slots, rear dovetail guide or M30 x 1.5 mounting base. Additionally, cabled sensor models provide ½" - 14 NPT internal threads for use with flexible conduit.
