Convergent reflective microphotoelectric sensors

The PM2 series is suitable for a large number of applications due to its compact and robust design. The application range is extended using the "U" shaped version. Due to the fixed focusing of the light beam,PM2 sensors enable precise object detection in a defined sensing range. The PM2 series measures independently of the background detects dark or slightly reflective objects and extremely thin objects (0.05mm).


  • Response time typically 20µs
  • Detection independent of background
  • Connector termination
