New FM series harsh duty photoelectric sensors are IP69K-rated with 316L stainless steel housings and are ideal for food and beverage applications. With 27 washdown models in three-wire NPN or PNP styles, the 10-30 VDC rectangular sensors are available in diffuse, diffuse with background suppression and polarized retroreflective styles starting at $42.00 . Through-beam models are sold as an emitter (starting at $33.00 ) and receiver (starting at $40.00 ), purchased separately. These harsh-duty photoelectric sensors have either an attached two-meter output cable, or an M8 or M12 quick-disconnect. All models have a selectable light-on / dark-on output setting; sensing ranges are available up to 10m. Backed by a one-year warranty, FM series photoelectric sensors are cULus, CE and RoHS approved.
Harsh Duty Rectangular Photo Sensors for Food and Beverage Applications
- Diffuse: 5 to 500 mm
- Polarized retroreflective: up to 5m
- Through-beam: up to 10m
Harsh Duty Photoelectric Sensors Overview
Maintaining success is often harder than achieving it. For instance, a microbrewer may come up with an amazing new beer, but it quickly becomes so popular that its high-quality process is stressed by cries for high-volume production. Well, Green Flash Brewing Co. in San Diego, Calif., may have resolved some of this eternal quality vs. quantity tug o' war. Its new plant is controlled by a micro-programmable logical controller (PLC) that gives its meticulous microbrewing process some of the added efficiencies needed to produce more beer and compete with larger operations, while maintaining the quality and taste that made it famous in the first place.

The Productivity3000 monitors and controls the entire machine via 365 discrete and analog inputs and outputs. Each of the 27 motor drives is interfaced to the controller via a high-speed Ethernet data link.
