A rugged all-rounder


Meet the new E3AS Photoelectric sensor series

When difficult-to-detect workpieces (curved, glossy, or matt surfaces) cannot be detected correctly, sensors need to be reselected or adjusted. The E3AS Series provides reliable detection with less effect of curved, glossy, or matt surfaces, reducing design and commissioning time.

With the line beam of the E3AS-HL Sensor, detection is less affected by the profile of the surface since the reflected light reaches the sensor from any part of the surface. Glossy objects such as oily metal workpieces also hardly affect detection.

Easy to fit

Space limitations for sensor installation make equipment design and retrofit work complicated, resulting in time-consuming work. In addition, there is a need to use reflectors for reliable detection of difficult objects or with various colors. The E3AS Series can be installed in challenging locations without the need to use reflectors, which reduces design and commissioning time and provide more flexibility in mounting process.

Curved surfaces of metal and low-reflective workpieces tend to affect detection, and it is time consuming to design the mounting angle. E3AS-HL Sensors can be mounted at a wide angle, making startup easy. 

Dirt resistant

When a sensor malfunction or breakage due to the environment causes a line stoppage during mass production, it can take a long time to restart. With the protected sensing surface, the E3AS Series helps minimize line downtime and maximize uptime and ensures stable operation even in harsh environments.

A dirty sensing surface can cause false detection due to the principle of photoelectric sensors. The E3AS Series has an industry-first antifouling coating on the sensing surface which prevents soot, dust and liquid droplets from sticking to the sensing surface and keeps the lens from fogging as well. This reduces false detection and sensing surface cleaning frequency.
