|This part number includes one reflective cable with lockwashers, nuts and a fiber cutter. It is used by either pointing the sensor tip at a non-reflecting area and detecting a reflective object passing in front of it, or by pointing the sensor tip at a reflecting surface and detecting a non-reflective object. The cable has a 1 mm central plastic optical core fiber and (16) 0.265 mm fibers arranged coaxially around the central fiber. The central fiber and the coaxial fiber bundle each have a 2.2 mm polyethylene jacket. The sensor end is stainless steel with M6x0.75 mounting threads. The standard length for the cable is 2 meters which is trimmed to length with the included fiber cutter. Longer lengths, custom configurations and terminated control ends are available to meet customer requirements.
