POF Reflective 0.5 mm core,
3mm diameter 15 mm long SS sensing tip
SH2001, 2 +/- 0.05 m
|This part number includes one reflective cable with a fiber cutter. It is used by either pointing the sensor tip at a non-reflecting area and detecting a reflective object passing in front of it, or by pointing the sensor tip at a reflecting surface and detecting a non-reflective object. The cable has a pair of 0.5 mm plastic optical core fibers each with a 1.0 mm polyethylene jacket. An adapter is required to connect to a standard 2.2 mm input. The sensor end is stainless steel and 3 mm in diameter. Generally, either a setscrew or a split collar is used to hold the sensor end in position. The standard length for the cable is 2 meters which is trimmed to length with the included fiber cutter. Longer lengths, custom configurations and terminated control ends are available to meet customer requirements.
