TOKYO, 7 October 2019 – Azbil Corporation (TOKYO:6845) has started sales of Photoelectric Switches for Harsh Environments Model H2B, designed for long-term use in harsh environments such as those in the metalworking processes of automotive manufacturing equipment.
In the metalworking processes of production lines for automobiles and automotive parts, photoelectric switches come into contact with various oil-based coolants, breakdowns frequently occur mainly resulting from coolant penetrating the switch interior through cracks and cables, or other means.
The Model H2B has been designed to reduce interruptions to production lines caused by switch breakdown, as well as increase factory operating efficiency.
It also features a die-cast housing for shock resistance and a glass lens cover. By improving the sealing of cables and outlets, and filling cable interiors with epoxy resin, Azbil has enhanced the switches’ protection from coolants.
Its features include a robust construction and superior oil resistance, inclusion of a model which includes a slit, and a standard model with a 10-meter cable.
With the philosophy of “human-centered automation,” Azbil is committed to satisfy customers’ needs,.
