Red light sensor in rugged metal housings

The BOS 21M photoelectric sensor family with IO-Link offers you a variety of application possibilities, including those in harsh industrial environments. That is because their rugged metal housing delivers both IP67 and IP69K protection and Ecolab approval.

Photoelectric Sensor Features
