Series 318/328

Amazingly simple – simply amazing

Our new 318B family of photoelectric sensors is proof that affordable and functional do not have to be a contradiction in terms. A robust plastic shell, a reliable detection behavior and intelligent fastening technology for M18 hole mounting make these sensors the efficient alternative in many application areas and the first choice for standard detection tasks.

Clever mounting and simple alignment

The patented omni-mount fastening system included in the scope of delivery convinces users with its simple and ingenious possibilities for fine adjustment. Flush mounting, e.g., in the belts of a conveyor system, is no problem with the 318B series. An additional model with 90° light beam gate extends the possible uses into even difficult installation situations.
