PD86 Provides Safe and Reliable Detection

PD86 retro-reflective sensorCarlo Gavazzi has extended its popular range of polarized retro-reflective sensors with a stylish and versatile unit, the PD86.

The sensor is designed to meet the harsh environments of today’s industrial door and gate applications.

With a long sensing distance of 12 metres on a 80mm diameter reflector, the sensor is particularly suited to applications where dust and other environmental conditions can influence the sensing distance and offers 3-optical detection directions 0°, 90° or 180° from its mounted position. The 44 x 86 x 39mm housing is manufactured in a smart grey, glass reinforced polycarbonate material which avoids tamper and corrosion proof issues whilst providing a water tight (IP66) and screwless construction.

The polarized retro-reflective function filters out any unwanted reflections from shiny objects such as metallic cars, providing a reliable detection source; whilst the dipswitch can be set to work with any door controller, and the two LEDs combined with four selectable settings make fault diagnostic simple and fast. The PD86 sensor fulfills European and North American regulations for industrial doors and is CE, UL325 and UL508 approved.
