Whatever the application, C23 series sensors meet its highest demands. Their miniature size (20 × 30 × 10 mm), first-class sensing ranges and practical accessories are ideal for limited spaces. Housings have an IP67 enclosure rating and are Ecolab-approved for use in hygienic areas. Versions with background suppression and pinpoint LED ensure high reliability and extended detection ranges, while types with patented UV technology set new benchmarks for transparent object detection. A stability alarm is also available as a second output on some types, while versatile mounting brackets ensure ease of installation. All PNP types include IO-Link communication, a key enabling technology for Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things.
Distance measurement sensors are also available in cubic C23 housings (20 × 34 × 12 mm). DTR-C23 and DTL-C23 sensors operate according to the principle of triangulation using either red light or laser. Types with red light measure distances of 20 to 80 mm or 30 to 200 mm, while the measurement range for laser types is 20 to 100 mm. The housings are extremely water-resistant with an IP67/IP69K enclosure rating.
