SICK has redesigned, expanded and upgraded the V12 family of photoelectric switches in cylindrical M12 housings.

The M12 sensor housing is standard for proximity switches.

With the V12-2 OPTO-series SICK offers consistent housing and mounting technology for an assortment of physical sensor principles such as V12-2 series opto-electronic proximity switches (photoelectric switches), IM12 series inductive proximity switches, and MM12 series magnetic proximity switches for a wide variety of sensor tasks in automation.

VT12T-2 photoelectric proximity switches have scanning distances of 100mm or 300mm with sensitivity adjustable by teach-in, or externally via a control input for supporting automated processes.

The VL12-2 photoelectric reflex switch has range 2.3m (PL80A) with polarisation filter for reliable detection even when surfaces are critical, with red light to support alignment on the reflector.

The VS/VE12-2 through-beam photoelectric switch now has a range of 4m.

Modular hardware is now included as is alternative connection technology (M12 device plug or connection cable).

The switches offer a choice of interface (dc 10-30V, PNP or NPN output, freely selectable light- or dark-switching outputs). High switching frequency is provided for reliable detection.

Short housing lengths and M12 housing provides economical, space-saving installation. Housings are made of cast-metal to withstand mechanical loads.

Variable system parameters and powerful ranges make this V12-2 family of photoelectric switches suitable for a variety of application fields such as warehouse and conveyor technology, packaging, electronics and handling automation, clay, stone and ceramics industries, and wood processing.
