Diffuse Mode -  Micro Photo Sensor

The PSV-BC and PSV-SR photo sensors are designed to be small yet powerful. These diffuse mode sensors are smaller than a postage stamp yet contain state-of-the-art technology.

These miniature photo sensors mount flat and face sensing. The PSV-SR model is made to detect very small objects . The PSV-BC is for general use. The operating voltage is 10 to 30V DC and they have built-in short circuit protection. They are IP65-rated and can be used in wash-down environments. These sensors will fit in tight spaces and their small size protects them against being jarred out of place or damaged. 

These come in PNP and NPN models and can be ordered with normally open or normally closed switches. This makes it easy to select the perfect photo sensor for your project. Mounting Screws and nuts are provided.

Miniature Photo Sensor
We are often asked if I should choose a PNP or an NPN sensor. The answer lies in how you plan to wire the sensor. PNP sensors are the most popular type in the USA. However, some applications still use NPN sensors. For a simple explanation of how to wire both versions download the file below. Or you can always call us and we will be glad to help. is here to help with your automation needs we carry a large variety of photo sensors, switches, Andon Lights, and workstation lighting.
