Proximity Sensor

We asked our customers: “What do you – as a proximity sensor user – really want in a sensor?” Some people wanted reliability in extreme conditions. But most simply wanted reliable performance in standard industrial environments.
These people also wanted attractive pricing, without compromising quality. So we put to work our 50-year heritage in proximity sensors: a heritage that has seen 200 million Omron proximity sensors shipped to satisfied customers across the globe. We put this heritage to work as well as our understanding of customer needs. The result is the new E2B sensor range: designed to give you quality, reliability and value-for-money.

Perfect fit for standard environments

The proximity sensors promise the perfect fit to your particular needs. We have four different sizes: M8, M12, M18 and M30, each one with single or double sensing distances, shielded and unshielded. There’s also a choice of short and long bodies, two connecting methods and four output types. With this range to choose from, you’re certain to find the perfect fit.

E2B Features 2

E2B Features 3

Time and cost savings

For standard conditions you can easily select photoelectric sensors because they have an easy-to-read code without complex codification. They also have a bright circular LED indicator, so you can quickly determine their operating status. These two features reduce the effort in machine maintenance, so you will save time and money.

360-degree indication

Easy visibility for 360° even in dark locations so you can mount the sensor in any direction.
