Photoswitches have all the options covered in compact size !
Shiva Electronics has a new range of all-in-one
miniature photoelectric switches designed to
provide economical and reliable alternative to
Two packages are available, measuring only M12 x 65mm
(cylindrical type) and 12 x 17 x 28mm (Sugar Cube), the switch
provides through beam, retroreflected (requires a reflector)
and diffuse types.
All switches have both NPN and PNP outputs rated up to 700mA
driving capacity, with further options of NO or NC contacts,
removing the need to stock multiple types of sensor.
Up to 200mm range can be achieved for the diffuse switch without
lens. With a M18x70mm sensor upto 1 meter sensing range is
available. For through beam and retro-reflective types up to 10m
is possible. An optional laser beam can be used for alignment
of through-beam and retro-reflective switches. These switches
are available with two connection methods, either with universal
male connector or with built-in cable.
The female connectors are available separately with necessary
wire length. The input supply range is 10 to 25V DC and is
protected for reverse polarity. The outputs are protected against
short circuits, overload, Inductive load and overvoltage. The speed
is sufficiently high to process 10,000 operations per second.
Sensitivity can be adjusted by potentiometer, and operations
are indicated by red LED.
The housing can be plastic or chromium-plated brass and
