Photoelectric sensors
V18 Laser

Your Benefits

  • Laser sensor in cylindrical M18 housing lowers installation costs
  • Time-saving installation and commissioning due to clearly visible light spot
  • Laser class 1 does not require any enhanced safety measures or labeling, which lowers installation costs
  • Quick response time ensures reliable object detection at high speeds, which increases the machine's throughput


The V18 Laser family of photoelectric sensors offers modern laser technology with a small, highly visible light spot that detects small parts and offers precise sensing. These laser class 1 sensors provide long sensing distances and short response times.

Yellow and green indicator LEDs ensure easy mounting, commissioning, adjustment and maintenance. Sensitivity can be set in several ways - either manually via a teach-in pushbutton or electronically using control input C.
