EQ-500 photoelectric sensor

  • EQ-500 photoelectric sensor

EQ-500 series

Adjustable range reflective photoelectric sensor  

  • DC type 
  • Multi-voltage type  

EQ-500 series DC type:  
The EQ-500 series is a reflective photoelectric sensor with a compact design. Background and foreground suppression (DC types) and a long sensing range of  up to 2.5m is characteristic of this sensor. Even in harsh environments prone to water or dust stable sensing is possible.  
EQ-500 series can be used to confirm the passage of packages on a conveyer belt or detect people in front of automatic doors.

Characteristics:

  • Long sensing range: 100cm or 250cm
  • BGS and FGS function
  • Unaffected by colour, form or material of an object
  • Response time 2ms
  • NPN/PNP transistor output
  • Compact design H68 x W26 x L68mm
  • Timer function (EQ-5_T only)
  • Short-circuit proof
  • Protection IP67

Options:

  • Sensor mounting bracket
  • Foot angled mounting
