Comet 18 mm tubular photoelectric sensors

Built sensor tough

Eaton's Comet photoelectric sensors series is a complete line of high performance, 18 mm tubular devices with a variety of models and modes to solve virtually any sensing problem. The sensors are available in thrubeam, reflex, polarized reflex, diffuse reflective, focused diffuse reflective, wide angle diffuse reflective, Perfect ProxR, fine spot Perfect ProxR and fiber optic sensing. Perfect ProxR is one of the most powerful problem-solving sensors available. These sensors can reliably detect targets of different color, reflectance, contrast or surface shape at the same range, while ignoring background objects just a fraction of an inch away.

Comet 18mm Tubular Photoelectric Sensors

Core features for the Comet 18 mm tubular photoelectric sensors

  • Industry standard 18 mm diameter threaded body has flat sides allowing it to be mounted like a tubular sensor or against any flat surface
  • Right-angle viewing models mount in a depth of only 6/10th of an inch
  • Perfect Prox technology provides exceptional background rejection and application problem-solving
  • Visible sensing beams let you see where the beam is aimed for quick setup and alignment
  • Solid polyurethane housing completely encapsulates internal circuits for high resistance to shock and vibration
  • Adaptable modulation circuit provides immunity to crosstalk from other closely mounted sensors
  • The industry's only background rejection sensors with a 2-wire circuit design
  • Models available with both AC and DC operation in a single unit up to 264 Vac
  • 4-wire DC sensors offer both NPN and PNP outputs
  • Output status indicator visible from a wide 270° angle
  • The Prism series, OEM Prism series and premium Comet series all share the same 18 mm flat-sided housing. This results in the largest interchangeable sensor family available, allowing you to select from well over 250 different models to solve the widest variety of sensing applications
