Oldies but Goldies …

...does not only apply to good music or exciting classic cars. We are a little proud to present here some sensors that have been in the ipf portfolio for a long time, yet which still allow reliable solutions in different process applications.


In our wide range of optical diffuse-reflection sensors, the OT160470 could be described as a classic car. But its design, features and reliability still make it a bestseller.


The device housing is made of robust die-cast zinc. The sensor works with visible red light, which makes positioning on the object to be detected particularly easy. A further advantage is the background suppression, which enables pure object detection regardless of its reflective properties. The OT160470 can be operated in light-on or dark-on mode. Due to its small dimensions, it is also predestined for confined installation conditions. 


The small housing width of 12.4mm is of particular advantage. The sensing range of the sensor is 15 (dead zone) to 300mm and is adjusted via a mechanical adjustment unit. Despite the simple adjustment possibility with all its advantages, the sensor has the high degree of protection IP67.
