Wenglor P1KE006 Through Beam Sensor

The through-beam sensor works with red light as well as a transmitter and a receiver.

The through-beam sensor works with red light as well as a transmitter and a receiver. Thanks to their high light intensity, the sensor provides a high degree of operational reliability even with interferences like steam, fog or dust. The transmitter can be deactivated using test input in order to test the functionality of the through-beam sensor. The IO-Link interface can be used to configure the sensor (PNP/NPN, NC/NO, switching distance), as well as for reading out switching statuses and signal values.


  • Condition monitoring
  • High light intensity with large switching reserve
  • IO-Link 1.1
  • Test input for high operational reliability


05 = Switching Distance Adjuster
30 = Switching Status/Contamination Warning
