Schneider Electric XUKS Stainless Steel Photoelectric Sensors

Daily cleaning cycles within the food and beverage processing industry subject sensors to severe conditions. Hygiene in the food and beverage processing industry is of paramount importance. The sensors must withstand, at least once a day, cleaning in very severe conditions: high pressure, high temperature and aggressive cleaning products. Needless to say, the photo-electric sensors must be capable of withstanding these conditions for many years, without failure. With the Schneider Electric OsiSense XUKS (stainless steel 316L, IP69K, ECOLAB) range, this is successively achieved. Resistance to aggressive environmentsIn the food and beverage processing industry, the daily cleaning cycle entails: Washing, removal …
