allow for extended range sensing of complex parts without a second
unit, thereby reducing wiring, simplifying setup and eliminating
alignment issues.
2. Top-of-the-line environmental resistance
Automotive stamp and weld applications are among the most difficult
sensing environments that exist. Stamp processes oſten make prox
sensors susceptible to impact from fast-moving metallic parts. Omron
overcomes these challenges with environmentally resistant, extended
range sensors that maximize system uptime in challenging
environments.
* E2EW proximity sensors are built with the harshness of weld
environments in mind. Their stainless steel body holds up against
impacts, and weld field immunity keeps sensing stable amid magnetic
fields. Optional slag resistance coatings keep maintenance needs to a
minimum.
* E3AS sensors have unique upgrades to withstand grimy
environments. A proprietary antifouling coating repels oil and dirt to
keep lenses clear, and an optional air blow unit allows enhances
cleaning even further. Protective lens covers are also available.
* E2E NEXT plastic face proximity sensors and E3AS photoelectric
sensors are IP67G rated reducing the potential for oil ingress and
malfunction. To learn more about the importance of an IP67G rating,
check out our white paper on the topic.
3. Intelligence at the sensor level
Omron sensors are getting smarter by the year, and they can now form
a key part of your predictive maintenance initiatives. For example, our
proximity sensors let you know when there's too much slag buildup or
when parts are close enough to cause damage. This functionality is
made possible by IO-Link.

* IO-Link enables condition monitoring for predictive maintenance. You
can set alarms on our E2E NEXT and E2EW sensors to indicate
potentially damaging target driſt towards the sensor, and the E2EW also
allows for slag buildup thresholds. With the E3AS sensors, you can set
alarms for abnormal light intensity (indicating particulate or liquid
buildup).
* IO-Link reduces commissioning time and increases replacement
integrity. You can remotely configure multiple sensors, and IO-Link
masters can store configuration information as well as part number
information to ensure that replacement sensors are configured
correctly.
* IO-Link information can be used as input information. Our E3AS-F and
E3AS-HL sensors can provide measurement information via this
technology that can be used for sensor configuration.
