Autonics Photoelectric Sensor 5m - BX5M-MFR

Relay, Terminal type connection, Sensitivity adjuster


The Autonics photoelectric sensor BX5M-MFR with built-in amplifiers is available in universal AC/DC type. This sensor which is Retroreflective type, comes in a rectangular shape, sensing distance of 5m, Sensing target of min Ø60mm and Rectangular installation. The standard rectangular photo sensor can be used in diverse applications requiring non-contact detection of Opaque material.

As a quick report, this photoelectric sensor provides:

  • 5m (MS-2) sensing side diameter
  • Relay control output
  • Ø60 mm sensing target
  • Infrared LED (940nm) Light source
  • Sensitivity adjuster built-in type.
  • Light ON/Dark ON mode selectable by switch.
  • IP66 ingress protection structure according to IEC standards
  • Double or strong insulation
  • Output method: AC/DC power, relay contact output


This Autonics photoelectric sensor's case and lens cover are made of Polycarbonate, its sensing part is made of Acrylic.

The BX5M-MFR features IP66 ingress protection.

The yellow LED on its body acts as the process indicator.


The Autonics sensor BX5M-MFR features standard terminal type.
