The sensors withstand high pressure and high temperature washdowns while offering resistance to corrosion and damage caused by harsh cleansing agents. Allen-Bradley 42CS photoelectric and 871TS inductive sensor families have stainless steel construction, extended temperature ratings and IP69K enclosure ratings. IP69K testing replicates the steam-cleaning process typically used in the food and beverage industry, and it requires the sensors to withstand spray pressure up to 1,450 psi and temperatures up to 176°F (80°C).
