Bulgin Photoelectric Automation Sensors

Bulgin Photoelectric Automation Sensors can detect an object's distance, presence, or absence using a light transmitter and a photoelectric receiver. The slim line sensors feature a simple, secure, and efficient design, achieving a watertight and dustproof seal to any standard M5 interface. The design only requires one sensor per system instead of using other technologies, such as retro-reflective or through beams. The components feature a highly robust casing material of Stainless Steel 316 and can withstand high degrees of physical impact. Bulgin Photoelectric Automation Sensors are a cost-effective and flexible sensing solution for manufacturing automation and industrial automation sensing operations.
