Z-M Series

Tough against oil and coolant! Cost effective sensor with excellent oil resistance

Employs a newly developed high-brightness 4 element LED

Longest sensing distance in the class!

Equipped with a newly developed 4 element red LED light source. In addition to minimizing the decreases in emitted light that occur over time, it features a through-beam type sensor with a longest-in-class 30 m sensing distance! Not only is detection over long distances possible, but it is also tolerant against dust and fine particles.

▪High brightness 4 element red LED

Degree of protection of cable type is IP69K

Achieved a degree of protection on IP66 that is tough against humidity, water, steam cleaning, etc. Sensor features a tough design that doesn’t break even when exposed to high-pressure washing on food processing machinery or when used in severe environments. Of course, it has also cleared IP67.

  • What is IP69K?

    IP69K is a protection rating stipulated by German standard DIN40050 Part 9.

    Test details:

    Sensors are placed on a turntable and rotated 5 times per minute while being sprayed with water under the following conditions.

    Water pressure: 80 to 100 bar
    Flow rate: 14 to 16 l/m
    Water temperature: +80℃ / -5℃
    Distance from spray nozzle: 100 to 150 mm
    Spray angle: 0°, 30°, 60°, 90°
    Spray time: 30 seconds at each angle

    * IP69k does not guarantee operation under the above conditions. Water or oil that adhere to the optical surface could cause light to refract and prevent detection from being performed correctly.
    *Excluding connector type and refl ector.
