Product Details

W18-3 Series Photoelectric Sensors

SICK's W18-3 photoelectric sensor series reliably detects objects under difficult application conditions. The W18-3 photoelectric sensors offer many advantages over conventional optical sensors due to superior OES technology. A wide range of sensor variants provides increased user flexibility, including proximity sensors with high-precision background suppression, retroreflective sensors with autocollimation and through-beam sensors with high operating reserves.

These photoelectric sensors are immune to ambient light, background reflections and light absorbing objects, making them a reliable sensor solution. The W18-3 series can also be customized according to the customer’s requirements in critical applications. Adjustment controls and LED indicators located on the rear panel allows the operator to quickly and easily set the minimum and maximum distances. In addition, the IO-Link function offers full process control, from commissioning to service.
