Oil-Resistant/Oil-Proof Photoelectric Sensors
The BJR series oil-resistant/oil-proof photoelectric sensors are optimized for use in various environments with cutting oil and lubricants such as automotive and machine tool industries. The sensors are capable of long distance detection up to 15 m (through-beam type). Various features including MSR (Mirror Surface Rejection) function and mutual interference prevention functions allow stable and error-free operation. The screw mounting hole is made of metallic nuts, allowing easy installation using M3 bolts and offering easy maintenance even when exposed to various oils.

Oil-resistant type models are available in cable type and cable connector types only.
Long Sensing Distance Up to 15 m
Through-beam type models feature long sensing distances up to 15 m.
Sensing distance: retroreflective type 3 m / diffuse reflective type: 1 m
M.S.R (Mirror Surface Rejection) Function (Retroreflective Type)
The retroreflective type models feature MSR (Mirror Surface Rejection) function which allow the units to only receive light from specific mirrors (MS-2S). This function allows stable detection of highly reflective targets including metals, mirrors, etc.
The Working Principle of Mirror Surface Rejection (MSR) Function
The light passed through the polarizing filter on the emitter will become horizontal. The light reflected on the retroreflective mirror will turn 90˚ and the vertical light will be received by receiver through vertical polarizing filter.
The light reflected from reflective targets will remain horizontal, and thus will not be received by the receiver with the vertical polarizing filter.
Mutual Interference Prevention Function (Except Through-Beam Types)
The emitter cycles can be configured so that the sensors will not be affected by other nearby sensors. This allows adjacent installation of multiple sensors.
Excellent Noise Immunity and Minimal Influence from Ambient Light
The sensors feature noise reduction algorithm and digital filters, offering excellent noise immunity and minimal influence from ambient light.
