Sick, a manufacturer of sensors, safety systems, and machine vision and automatic identification products for factory and logistics automation, offers its new V180-2 cylindrical photoelectric sensor. The V180-2 provides an economical solution for universal applications, such as product detection and machine positioning in packaging, general manufacturing automation, material handling, and warehousing systems.
These new sensors are easily aligned and installed using an extremely bright red sender LED, according to the company. They also feature indication LEDs that are highly visible due to translucent housing material, allowing for 360-degree visibility. The indication LEDs provide continuous signal strength information, offering quick and simple troubleshooting.
The sensor can handle fast processes where objects must be detected at high speeds due to its short, 0.5 ms response time while increasing throughput. The V180-2 offers complementary light and dark operate outputs (selectable light or dark operate). The LEDs also indicate if the sensor is wired for light or dark operate. The flat, smooth lens reduces the collection of dust and dirt for safe operation with minimized maintenance and cost.
