Through Beam Sensors are used in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications. Through Beam Sensors are some of the most common, effective Photoelectric Sensors used in industry today. They are a popular choice as they last longer, function better, and are incredibly accurate.
RS offer an extensive selection of high-quality Through Beam Sensors from industry-leading brands including Allen Bradley, Banner, Baumer, Omron, Pepperl Fuchs, Sick, and of course, RS PRO.
Through-beam sensors (aka thru-beam) rely on two separate housings, one for the transmitter and one for the receiver, with the transmitter providing a continuous beam of light to the receiver. Each time an object passes through the beam this interrupts the signal between the transmitter and receiver, which in turn causes the receiver to send an electrical signal to the output. Through-beam sensors are suited to long-distance sensing and can detect almost any object, irrespective of colour or angular motion.
