Leuze electronics extend their range of explosion proof optical sensors

Leuze electronics explosion proof sensor range is expanded by a protective housing which enables nearly 200 small optical sensors to be used in EX zones.
Leuze electronic have extended their range of explosion proof optical sensors with several new versions, plus a range of innovative new protection housings. These housings can be fitted to Leuze electronic’s very cost effective standard sensors to enable their installation in potentially explosive atmospheres.

The PH 3B55 Ex-n protective housings are designed for use with almost 200 sensors from Leuze electronic. This provides optical detection, contrast scanning, and distance measurement from their 3B, 25B and 55 series ranges.

Sensors correctly mounted in the protective housing can be used in areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere consisting of a gas/air or dust/air mixture, which is expected to occur seldom and only briefly. These are Zone 2 (gas) and Zone 22 (dust) of Group II, category 3 according to the CENELEC classification. In Zone 22, the devices can be used with conductive and non-conductive dust.

The sensors also comply with the new international Standards IEC EN 60079-15 and IEC EN 61241-1.

Leuze electronic ‘the sensor people’ are committed to being the supplier of choice by providing industry leading customer service and products. As a market leader in optical sensors the product range is innovative and extensive. The range covers economical standard sensors to highly individual special solutions, such as laser distance measurement, in fact the best solution for all kinds of applications and industries.

In addition to the optical sensor product family, Leuze also offer a far-reaching range of machine safety protection includes laser scanners and safety light curtains with integrated AS-i Safe and muting solutions, as well as Robust, and Ex rated versions. Leuze electronic also provide a machine safety inspection service, which will access machines using any make of safety light curtain.

Leuze’s third product family includes Barcode, 2D Code, Direct Marking & RFID, in a feature rich range which includes innovative features such as code fragment technology, auto-focusing and omni-directional scanning. Extensive interconnectivity options are available including integrated PROFIBUS or CAN protocols.
