Eaton Cutler-Hammer Thru-Beam (Opposed Mode)
Cutler-Hammer 55 Series Photoelectric Sensors are identical to the 50 Series except without the interchangeable outputs or logic functions. They offer durability and high optical performance in a cost effective, self-contained package. The 55 Series features sensors with AC and DC operation in a single unit. A relay option is available on these models that provides a 3 Amp SPDT relay output for high current switching. Sensors are available that in thrubeam, retroreflective, diffuse reflective and fiber optic sensing modes. Each sensor features a built-in swivel bracket for easy mounting and to allow precise adjustment of the sensor alignment.

Product Features

  • High optical performance includes 100-foot (30.5m) thru-beam range and 6-foot (1.8m) diffuse reflective range
  • Both AC and DC operation in a single unit
  • Short circuit protected solid-state outputs on AC/DC and DC-only versions (except thru-beam)
  • Relay output option provides 3 Amp current switching on AC/DC models
  • Thru-beam models feature an infrared sensing beam along with a visible red LED behind the lens in the source unit to aid in sensor alignment
  • Fiber optic sensors operate in thru-beam or diffuse reflective mode depending on the fiber optic cable selected
  • Glass fiber optic cables plug into NEMA 4 rated sockets on the front of the sensor. Sockets are leak-proof even when the fiber optic cables are not plugged in
  • Fully potted construction for use in areas subject to washdown, high shock and/or vibration
  • Choice of pre-wired power cable or built-in mini-connector versions. Standard pre-wired cable length is 6 feet (1.8m)
  • Built-in, patented, 360 degree rotation 10 degree tilt ball-swivel base
