Keyence Corp. of America Entries

  • ►  Sensors • Photoelectric Sensors 

    For: Entry

    Used to detect distance, absence, or presence of an object by using a light transiter and a photoelectric receiver.

    Keyence America develops and manufactures heavy-duty photoelectric sensors and self-contained photoelectric sensors. The heavy-duty sensors feature detecting distances of 4m-20m, 10m-40m, or 400m-2000m. Some of the self-contained sensors are threaded, feature automatic calibration, or are intended for side-by-side operation. The company also produces a one-touch calibration amplifier that feature 4 meter detecting distance.

  • ►  Factory Automation • Machine Safety • Light Curtains 

    For: Entry

    Light Curtains

    Keyence America manufactures no dead zone safety light curtains available as finger or hand protection types with water-resistant IP-65 housing. The light curtains have an operation range of up to 9m, built-in LED indicators, and optical axis pitch of 10mm.

  • ►  Sensors • Ultrasonic Sensors 

    For: Entry

    Used to generate high frequency sound waves to calculate the time interval between sending and receiving the signal to determine distance to an object.

    Keyence manufactures the FW Series of multi-reflective ultrasonic sensors that are unaffected by a target's material, color, or luster. The sensors have a maximum detection range of 39.37", as well as a high level reliability due to the new Active Wave Stabilizer (A.W.S.) algorithm that stabilizes detection while avoiding the influence of target vibration or external disturbances.  In addition, their bodies are IP67 rated, and their heads are designed to detect only the nearest object, eliminating the need to consider the background luster or shape, or how the sensor is tilted.
