Hot Metal Sensors / KD50 Series

KD50 Series


The KD50 Series sensors are through-beam type CMDs that output ON-OFF signals by detecting blocking of light by the detected object that passes between the transmitter and receiver. For receivers, relay output and voltage output types are available depending on the output mode.

  • Compact, low-cost. Streamlined design provides the smallest size and lowest cost of all water-cooled, amplifier built-in type sensors.
  • Robust and lightweight case Robust case capable of withstanding severe operating conditions such as heat, water and shock also offering light weight is employed.
  • Excellent stability. Received optical output about tenfold of operation level at detecting distance of 50 m ensures detection even with minor soiling of lens or in adverse environment.
  • Attachable airless dust hood or air purge hood. Different types of airless dust hoods and air purge hoods are available for prevention of soiling of lens, etc.
