Photoelectric Sensors

Documentation   Product Selector
Carlo Gavazzi offers a large range of photoelectric sensors which are used extensively on packaging machinery, automatic door systems, factory automation, and in car washes. Our sensors are available in diffuse reflective, background suppression, reto-reflective, polarized, through beam, clear object detection, and color recognition.

Carlo Gavazzi is a leader in photoelectric sensors for automatic doors and have one of the broadest range of UL325 sensors on the market.

We also offer a range of fiber-optic type sensors for applications where a conventional sensor cannot be used (space restrictions, temperature, atmosphere). Our LD30 Series of Laser sensors feature Time of Flight measurement and provide an analog distance to object value via IO-Link. Our PD30CNB photoelectric sensors features background suppression and a Point Spot light source for increased reliability.

Also included in our range of photoelectric sensors are our VP series optical types. These are ideal for use in level applications. They are available in various housing materials which allow their use in various industrial cleaning solutions.
