Great things come

in small packages
the new tiny
O8 photocell.

Position sensors
Accurate detection,
flexible installation and
efficient configuration Extremely reliable background

with IO-Link suppression.

Far reaching:
Range up to 80 mm
even colour-independent.

Detects tiniest components,
even if they have dark or shiny

Available as cable version or
pigtail with M8 3-pin and 4-pin

Easy configuration or range
setting via IO-Link.

Reliable detection of tiny objects

The O8 guarantees accurate detection of
tiniest, narrow and flat parts, even if they
have dark or shiny surfaces.
This is supported by extremely reliable
background suppression.

Best optical performance

Despite its miniature dimensions, the
sensor has a range of 80 mm.
It detects reflective objects of different
colours without any difficulty, even against
constantly changing backgrounds, as is
e.g. the case on robot arms.
The O8 is predestined for applications
where space is at a premium.
