Built-in amplifier photoelectric sensors

PZ2 series

This product is currently not being sold in Europe.

Photoelectric Sensors for Side-by-Side Operation

Self-contained Photoelectric Sensors

Greatly Improved Serviceability

Modular Design

Mounting the sensor body and routing the cable can be performed independently, reducing time and labor.

When replacing the sensor body because of damage, or if replacing the sensor body with a different model because of changes in specifications, there's no need to replace the entire sensor.

Highly Durable Metallic Sensor Head

Highly Durable for Long Life

Unlike conventional resin head models, a metallic head cannot easily be damaged or cracked.

Side-by-side Installation of Two Sensors

Alternate-frequency Operation

The PZ2-41(P), PZ2-42(P), and PZ2-61(P) can operate at alternate-frequencies, enabling two sensors to be mounted in close proximity.

Newly Developed P.R.O. Function

Improved Detection Stability

P.R.O. function: The PZ2-61's optical system is constructed so that the transmitter emits only the horizontal component of the light wave through the horizontal polarizing filter. The receiver then collects only the vertical component through the vertical polarizing filter. This allows mirror-surfaced targets to be repeatedly detected.
