Pepperl+Fuchs' R2 Series ultra-miniature photoelectric sensors fit in tight spaces
Pepperl+Fuchs' R2 Series is a complete family of ultra-miniature photoelectric sensors available in four sensing modes to suit varied application needs. These sensors feature a 24 mm x 7.5 mm x 11.2 mm housing, industry-standard mounting footprint, a flush and wear-resistant antistatic glass lens and a 45° cable outlet to maximize mounting flexibility. Consequently, the R2 series can be mounted where other photoelectric sensors cannot – in extremely tight spaces and close to moving objects.
Industry-standard 15 mm mounting hole separation enables R2 series sensors to retrofit into existing applications. Threaded sensor mounting holes enable installation without mounting nuts.
R2 series sensors feature a glass optical surface which is designed to be more resistant to environmental contaminants, chemicals and abrasion. Additionally, the tamperproof housing of each R2 series sensor ensures that unauthorized personnel cannot make modifications or alterations after the sensor is setup. Enhanced and strategically placed LEDs clearly indicate the sensor’s operating state.
R2 series no-load supply current is less than 10 mA – up to 50 percent less than competitive models. Maximum sensing distances vary by detection mode, with thru-beam mode sensors offering a range up to 2.5 meters (8.2 feet). These sensors deliver a response time of 600 µs, and can operate with 10-30 VDC supply voltage and within operating temperatures from -25 °C to 60 °C (-13 °F to 140 °F). R2 series photoelectric sensors are IP67 rated, carry the CE mark and UL and cUL approvals.
