Proximity and Photoelectric Switches
Proximity and photoelectric switches detect objects and activate or deactivate equipment. Proximity sensors and switches use means such as an electromagnetic field or infrared light to detect objects where high precision is required. They're often used in manufacturing and robotics to keep processes operating efficiently or in security to keep areas safe. Photoelectric and fiber optic sensors use light beams to detect objects moving in a specified area. They're used for packaging, material handling, food processing, automotive, and other industrial applications to keep processes running smoothly. Proximity and photoelectric accessories protect and enhance the capabilities of sensors and switches.
