The new SICK W8 Inox photoelectric proximity sensor range offers the highest standards of rugged environmental protection for a wide range of duties. Comprising five models, including proximity (with and without background suppression), reflex and through beam types, the W8 Inox delivers the fastest response speed on the market for improved precision and safety at a very competitive price.

“With IP69K protection, stainless steel construction and high performance scratch resistant and optical plastic outer components, the W8 Inox provides extreme reliability,” comments Phil Dyas SICK (UK) Industrial Sensors specialist.

“Regimes such as harsh detergent washdown in food, beverage and pharmaceutical processes, or resistance to hot cutting fluids and lubricants in CNC centres are typical applications. We have trialled it in many different locations with excellent feedback.”

The SICK W8 Inox is based on SICK’s innovative Pinpoint LED-based sensor which ensures excellent scanning ranges up to 20 metres, depending on model, and offers greater reliability than low power lasers with comparable performance. The concentrated light spot aids beam adjustment, and the sensor- mounted control facilitates easy set-up.

Using standard M3 stainless steel mountings, installation of the W8 Inox is rapid, trouble-free and durable. Its compact 333 X 11 X 22mm dimensions are based on standard industrial sensor sizes aiding interchangeability.
