The high level of hygiene in the food industry requires equipment to withstand daily wash-downs at high temperature and/or high pressure. Photoelectric sensors are commonly used to detect material presence on food and beverage conveyors. The PD30ET photoelectric sensors are perfect for these applications, designed in AISI 316L stainless steel housing and rated IP69K. They can withstand water temperatures up to 80ºC (176ºF, high pressure washing up to 100 bar (1,450 psi) and are resistant to both alkaline and acidic cleaning agents. With integrated IO-Link, PD30ET...IO sensors offer flexibility to changing production requirements and real-time status monitoring.
