Can a Photoelectric Sensor with an Optical Fiber be used in an
Everything except the Amplifier Unit can be used in an explosion-proof
A Photoelectric Sensor with an Optical Fiber has no electrical parts, and
it can thus be used even in hazardous, explosion-proof areas. However, the
lens, the case, and the fiber covering are made of plastic, so they must
be free from corrosion or deterioration (fogging) due to contact with
As long fiber lengths are commonly used in explosion-proof areas,
E32-T17L Fiber Unit (standard fiber length: 10 m) is recommended.
