ZM-IP69K Wash-Down Sensor Series
Tough against oil and coolant! Cost effective sensor with excellent oil resistance
Employs a newly developed high-brightness 4 element LED
Longest sensing distance in the class!
Equipped with a newly developed 4 element red LED light source. In addition to minimizing the decreases in emitted light that occur over time, it features a through-beam type sensor with a longest-in-class 30 m sensing distance! Not only is detection over long distances possible, but it is also tolerant against dust and fine particles.
▪High brightness 4 element red LED
Degree of protection of cable type is IP69K
Achieved a degree of protection on IP66 that is tough against humidity, water, steam cleaning, etc. Sensor features a tough design that doesn’t break even when exposed to high-pressure washing on food processing machinery or when used in severe environments. Of course, it has also cleared IP67.
What is IP69K?
IP69K is a protection rating stipulated by German standard DIN40050 Part 9.
Sensors are placed on a turntable and rotated 5 times per minute while being sprayed with water under the following conditions.
Water pressure: 80 to 100 bar Flow rate: 14 to 16 l/m Water temperature: +80℃ / -5℃ Distance from spray nozzle: 100 to 150 mm Spray angle: 0°, 30°, 60°, 90° Spray time: 30 seconds at each angle
* IP69k does not guarantee operation under the above conditions. Water or oil that adhere to the optical surface could cause light to refract and prevent detection from being performed correctly.
*Excluding connector type and refl ector.
