Photo sensors

The FSP 60 series was developed for extreme environmental conditions like those in the paper industry:

  • extremely high light output offers maximum reserve against pollution, even with long fibre optic cable
  • sensors are effectively protected from harsh environmental influences such as vapours, dust, etc. by a robust case, and
  • predestined for use at high temperatures in combination with glass fibre optic cables
  • pollution control via intensity display on the sensor case or via an analogue intensity signal

FSP60 photo sensors are available in 24VDC / 115VAC / 230VAC versions, plug or cable connection as well as with different outputs (transistor, relay, analogue). For further details please refer to the datasheets below.

FSP60 sensors can be used as reflectance sensors when used stand alone  or in combination with a suitable guide as fibre optic reflectance sensors or fibre optic light barriers.
