NA2-N photoelectric sensor

General purpose and slim body area sensor.

NA2-N series

The NA2-N series offers incredibly high performance in a general purpose area sensor. The slim body, just 13mm thick and 30mm wide, can be installed almost anywhere, greatly increasing planning efficiency. With a wide range of thin resin case type area sensors, from a sensing height of 540mm (28 beam channels) down to 140mm (8 beam channels), you can choose the size that best suits your purpose. In order to meet global market standards, these sensors are CE marked, conform to the EMC Directive and are currently undergoing UL recognition certification. In addition to this, a PNP output type is also available.
