Amplifier Built-in / U-shaped Micro Photoelectric Sensor [Compact / Connector built-in type] PM-65

Cautions For Use

  • Never use this product as a sensing device for personnel protection.
  • In case of using sensing devices for personnel protection, use products which meet laws and standards, such as OSHA, ANSI or IEC etc., for personnel protection applicable in each region or country.


  • The following conditions must be observed when using screws to mount the sensor unit.
Screw Spring washer Flat washer Tightening torque
M3 screw 1 pc. ø6 mm ø0.236 in
(small round washer)


Cable extension

  • Cable extension is possible up to an overall length of 100 m 328.084 ft with a 0.3 mm2, or more, cable. However, since a voltage drop shall occur due to the cable extension, ensure that the power supply voltage at the end of the connector attached cable of the sensor or at the sensor terminals is within the rating.

Cable extension

But, when the overall cable length, including the cable attached to the sensor, is as given below, there is no need to confirm the voltage.

Conductor crosssection
area of extension cable
Total cable length
0.08 to 0.1 mm2 Up to 5 m 16.404 ft
0.2mm2 Up to 10 m 32.808 ft
0.3mm2 Up to 20 m 65.617 ft


Connection method

  • Insert the connector attached cable CN‑14A-C□ / CN‑14A-R-C□ in the connector part of this product as shown in the figure below.

Disconnection method


  • This device has been developed / produced for industrial use only.
  • Since the sensor is intended for use inside machines, no special countermeasures have been taken against extraneous light. Take care that extraneous light is not directly incident on the beam receiving section.

  • Do not use during the initial transient time (50 ms) after the power supply is switched on.
  • If the sensor is used in a place having excessive dust, periodically clean the emitting and receiving sections with a dry, soft cloth.
  • If there is a large surge generating equipment, such as, motor, solenoid, electromagnetic valve, etc., in the vicinity of the sensor, use a surge absorber on that equipment. Further, do not run the sensor cables along power lines and use a capacitor between +V and 0 V, if required. Use the sensor after confirming that the surge has been eliminated.
