Infrared sensors from EGE are suited for material detection in applications where standard sensors fail due to excessive ambient temperatures.
Depending on the model, the units are designed to cover a maximum of 50 to 2,000°C. They react to the energy radiated by hot bodies. Featuring switching outputs, the ODMO series includes many models with various switching temperatures and angular fields.
A robust IP68/IP69K stainless steel housing protects the lens and the electronics, enabling the sensors to reliably detect hot workpieces at ambient temperatures of up to 75°C even in wet environments.
The ODML series is suitable for installation where the electronics must be protected from excessive heat. It consists of special fibre optic cables and easily exchangeable auxiliary IP67 lenses, enabling the physical separation of sensor and electronics.
