          Heavy-duty Photoelectric Sensors

          PX series

          The Facts Behind the PX's Performance

          IP68g/IP69K [NEMA Type 4x/6P/13] rated sensor head

          The Facts Behind the PX's Performance

          FACT 1

          Backfilled structure

          The case is completely backfilled under vacuum with transparent epoxy resin. This ensures maximum adhesion with the cable and lens, and prohibits liquid entry.

          FACT 2

          Stainless-steel housing is approx. 1.9 mm* thick

          The thick walls of the sensor permit higher levels of installation torque, preventing release due to vibration or shock.
          * PX-H72(G) only. The cases of other models are 1.5 mm in thickness.

          FACT 3

          Glass lens

          The tough, scratch-resistant, optical glass lens can be used in the harshest environments.

          FACT 4

          Ultra high-intensity LED

          Incredible power by combining infrared or 4-element red LED with an optical quality glass lens.

          FACT 5

          Plastic inner sleeve

          The plastic inner sleeve has low water absorbing properties and excellent oil-resistance. It prevents water or oil from penetrating the case.

          ENCLOSURE RATING IP68g

          The protective structure complies with JEM (Japan Electrical Manufacturers' Association) standards. IP68g does not ensure safe usage when a product is soaked in oil.

          ENCLOSURE RATING IP68g

          The IP tests are conducted under a specified conditions within a specified time and do not ensure the performance for extended periods of time.

          ENCLOSURE RATING IP69k

          NEMA TYPE REFERENCE

          4X

          Indoor or outdoor use primarily to provide a degree of protection against corrosion,windblown dust and rain,splashing water,hose-directed water and damage from external ice formation.

          6P

          Indoor or outdoor use primarily to provide a degree of protection against hose-directed water,the entry of water during prolonged submersion at a limited depth and damage from external ice formations.

          13

          Indoor use primarily to provide a degree of protection against dust,spraying of water,oil,and noncorrosive coolant.
