February 7, 2019 – Rockwell Automation has added the Allen-Bradley 42AF RightSight M30 photoelectric sensor to its smart sensing portfolio.

Built with IO-Link capability, the sensor delivers data and diagnostics from the sensor directly into a control system, which the company says can help minimize downtime and increase productivity. With this capability, the sensor provides information such as signal strength, location, proximity alarms and timing functions that help create operational efficiencies. The 360-degree high visibility LED power and status indicators further assist in setup, monitoring and troubleshooting.

The durable, right-angle housing offers a universal 30 mm nose and 18 mm base mount. The IP67/IP69k/1200 psi rated housing is fully sealed, enabling the RightSight M30 to withstand tough industrial environments, including those involving high-pressure and high-temperature wash-downs.

Featuring multiple sensing modes, the sensor is also available in easy-to-apply, adjustment-free models and teachable versions that adjust sensitivity and output configuration at the push of a button.
