Stainless-steel Housing SensorsBGS-ZM Series
Excellent water resistance/ oil resistance!
Suitable for automobiles, machine tools and food industry
- Equipped with a distance adjustment to enable distance setting
- Employs a low deterioration 4 element red LED for the Light source
- Degree of protection: IP69K (cable type), Equivalent to IP69g (connector type)
Tough against oil and coolant!
Cost effective sensor with excellent oil resistance
Equipped with distance adjustment
Long-distance measurement is possible
Equipped with a distance adjustment, unusual for an oil-resistant/IP69K compliant BGS sensor. Because distance adjustments are performed using a potentiometer and not the sensor mounting position, time can be saved and designs can be made more flexible.
Employs a newly developed high-brightness 4 element LED
High detection stability
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 is also tolerant againstdust and fine particles.
Cable type features a degree of protection on IP69K
Achieved an IP69K degree of protection 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 clear IP67.
What is IP69K?
IP69K is a protection rating stipulated by German standard DIN40050 Part 9.
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 reflector.
