Photoelectric Sensors In Singapore

If you are looking for photoelectric sensors in Singapore, you’ve come to the right place! At Electgo, we offer a huge range of photoelectric sensors in Singapore ranging from those with built-in amplifiers, built-in power supply and separate amplifiers.

Photoelectric Sensors detect objects, changes in surface conditions, and other items through a variety of optical properties.

A Photoelectric Sensor consists primarily of an Emitter for emitting light and a Receiver for receiving light. When emitted light is interrupted or reflected by the sensing object, it changes the amount of light that arrives at the Receiver. The Receiver detects this change and converts it to an electrical output. The light source for the majority of Photoelectric Sensors is infrared or visible light (generally red, or green/blue for identifying colors).

Photoelectric Sensors detect photo-optical workpieces. OMRON provides many varieties of sensors, including diffuse-reflective, through-beam, retro-reflective, and distance-settable Sensors, as well as Sensors with either built-in or separate amplifiers and Fiber Units.

Frequently Asked Questions About Photoelectric Sensors In Singapore

How Does A Photoelectric Sensor Work?

A photoelectric sensor uses an emitter for releasing light and a receiver to receive light. By toggling the amount of light that arrives at the receiver, it results in the release of an electrical output.

What Are The Types Of Photoelectric Sensors?

The three most common types are thru-beam, diffused and retro reflective sensors.

What Is A Photoelectric Proximity Sensor?

A photoelectric sensor detects objects directly in front using the sensor’s own light that is being reflected from a surface to detect where the object is being placed.

Where Are Photoelectric Sensors Being Used?

They are commonly used in production lines or packaging plants which require the detection of proximities or any errors relating to the size of an item or the location of an item.
