At 4.5 mm thick, Keyence claims its PR-M/F Series is an industry first. In addition to a SUS316L stainless steel body, the unit’s resin-filled “hybrid structure” allows the photoelectric sensor to withstand approximately five times greater shock than conventional models. The sensors’ housing with both IP67 and IP69K enclosure ratings is also highly resistant to oils, acids, and alkaline detergents. Operating at approximately 300 kHz, about twice the frequency of typical photoelectric sensors, the miniature photoeye delivers stable operation and has reduced effects of interference and target color or angle. With its integrating standard M3 mounting holes and M8 connector, the small unit is also easy to install.
