The MP series modular sensors include thru-beam heads. The MP family enables users to customize a sensing solution for almost any application. Each component of this series is sold separately. These sensors are designed for harsh duty. The MP series rugged IP69K housing can withstand up to a 1200-psi washdown. The modular design allows for exchangeable rotatable heads, limit switch and plug-in bases, screw terminal, preleaded, and connector version receptacles. Multifunction timer/logic cards are also available. Outputs are dependent on the base selected. Every head needs an MP series base, which can be purchased separately, to operate.
Thru-beam mode sensors use an emitter and a receiver. In this mode, an emitted light beam is aimed directly into the receiver. An object is detected when the light beam is broken. This configuration offers the largest sensing range and is best suited for applications that are subject to contamination. The emitter receiver pair can be slightly misaligned and still effectively operate. Common applications for thru-beam mode sensors include bottle cap placement and point level control.
