You can cut fiber optics to

That way you only use as

significant savings, especially
if several sensors are used.
For simple applications, you
may not need an end fitting.

All glass fiber optics are useable with basic diffuse sensor BOS 18M-...-PD-...
with 400 mm sensing distance, or BOS 18M-GU-1PF-... with 1000 mm sensing distance.

Indicate the desired length L for the fiber optic cable in the part number!
Increments from 0.5 mm to max. 3 m possible.
Example:
BFO 18-...-30-0,5 for 0.5 m fiber length
BFO 18-...-30-2 for 2 m fiber length

Caution
When using a fiber optic thru-beam the normally open signal of the base unit
is changed into a normally closed signal! Assembly note
BOS 30M with BFO 18V
