Miniature Photoelectric Sensors

Our Bulletin 42KD Miniature Photoelectric Sensors are designed for applications with limited mounting space. They offer the performance of much larger sensors in a compact housing. This family of LED and laser sensors is the most complete family of miniature sensors on the market. Additionally, these sensors offer easy commissioning via push button teach or through a control wire. The background suppression versions provide reliable object detection independent of the target size, shape, or color.
