New Photoelectric Sensor from Rockwell Automation Built for Demanding Applications

20 February 2019

High-performance sensor offers long-distance detection and increased environmental tolerance for industries such as food and beverage, material handling and packaging

Tuesday 19th February 2019 - The new
Allen-Bradley 42AF RightSight M30 photoelectric sensor from Rockwell Automation is the latest addition to the smart sensing portfolio. Built with improved environmental resistance and long-distance detection in a mid-sized, right-angle housing, the RightSight M30 smart sensor offers the flexibility and performance required for a wide range of high-demand applications.

“Our new photoelectric sensor was developed to help increase reliability in harsh environments where dirt or undesired particles could accumulate on the sensor lens,” says Adonis Evangelista, product manager, Rockwell Automation.

Built with IO-Link capability, the sensor easily integrates into The Connected Enterprise by delivering data and diagnostics from the sensor directly into a control system to help minimise downtime and increase productivity. With this capability, the sensor provides information such as signal strength, location, proximity alarms and timing functions that help create operational efficiencies and streamline troubleshooting. The 360-degree high visibility LED power and status indicators further assist in setup, monitoring and troubleshooting.

The durable, right-angle housing offers a universal 30 mm nose and 18 mm base mount for fast, flexible installation and replacement. The IP67/IP69k/1200 psi rated housing is fully sealed, enabling the RightSight M30 to withstand tough industrial environments, including those involving high-pressure and high-temperature wash-downs. Featuring multiple sensing modes, the sensor is also available in easy-to-apply, adjustment-free models and teachable versions that adjust sensitivity and output configuration at the push of a button.

The Allen-Bradley 42AF RightSight M30 photoelectric sensor from Rockwell Automation was introduced at Automation Fair 2018 and is currently available worldwide. For additional information and product features, please click
