More than sensors: Since 1978, when AECO was founded in Inzago (MI), we follow step by step the growth of our customers. A gradual process but in continuous evolution which has resulted in a significant growth to achieve our goals and satisfy our customers requirements. Manufacturers of Quality Industrial Automation controls and Sensors.

Fibre optic and sensor with various shaped terminal series. Built-in sensibility adjustment. Alternate or direct current models static or with relay outputs. All models available with cable or connector plug.

Magnetic Sensors:
Sensors that have a built-in REED switch that activates when a magnet is near. Supplied in standard version with open, changeover and bistable contacts. The metallic housing of cylindrical series SMC comes in 6-8-10-12-18mm diameters. Plastic or metallic housing of parallelepiped series SMP in dimensions 15x8x32mm. Magnets available in various shapes and dimensions.

Ultrasonic sensors for detection of objects in well defined areas, or for distance measurement such as in the case of tank levels.
Available in measuring distances from 20 cm to 5 metres, from M12 to larger parallelepiped 6x4x4 cm compact housings. Programmable by means of potentiometer or self-programmable M12 version. All models are available with analogue or digital (binary) outputs both in current as well as voltage and all models are supplied with M8x1 outlet connectors.
Fork shape version with 40 mm belt-guided opening and detection range of 13 mm with a 0.1 mm precision tolerance and analogue output from 0 to 10V.

Photoelectric Safety Light Curtains:
The Beamstar safety light curtain series FBS or FBSEL have a projector and a receiver, integrated by an external power supply unit FBS-AL provided with a safety relay FBS-UR conforming to norms.
The system controls the safety of operator during various phases: finger, hand, body and thanks to its compact dimensions and easy installation represents a downright “safety door”. The safety light curtain maintains a constant functionality regardless of the operating distance, the correct functionality is independent of dust deposits and the state of the curtain is indicated on a numeric display in real-time on FBS series, or by LEDs for FBSEL models.
Available in 14, 30 and 50mm resolution models (other resolutions available upon request) for small object detection or in 1-2-3-4 ray models for body detection in protection levels 2 or 4 according to EN61496-2.

Level Controls:
These are used where it is necessary to control with a high degree of security the level of non conductive substances both liquid and solid.
They are particularly used for controlling the level in silos for cereals and foodstuffs, in feed plants, foundries and cement works.
They function in the vicinity of the material to be controlled.

  • Supply voltage 24 Vac or 110/220 Vac
  • Relay output with 1 pole changeover from 5A to 220 Vac.
  • Led incorporated
  • Sensitivity adjustment
  • Selector of min/max level
  • SC series with power supply-amplifier incorporated within probe
  • SCD series with power supply-amplifier separated from probe
  • SX2 type with power supply-amplifier in plastic body
  • Bar electrodes of teflon in standard lengths of 300/500/800 mm
  • Plastified cable electrodes in standard lengths of 1/2/3/4 metres
  • Housing in aluminum alloy with threaded fitting 1.1/2 inch GAS

Rotation Controls:
This unit is used for checking for the slowing down of rotating units due to the slipping of belts of clutches, fracture of transport belts or chains or as a motor protection in the case of mechanical overload.
This control is carried out by the CRTP controller which is made up of an electronic circuit which is enclosed in a plastic container which has an undecal plug and a sensor which can be inductive, capacitive or photoelectric.

  • Power supply 24-110/220 Vac 50/60 Hz
  • Relay output 1 pole changeover 5A to 220 Vac Led incorporated
  • The time range goes from 0.03 sec. to 512 sec Initial delay is adjustable in order to permit rotating unit to start
  • Function A with alarm and manual reset Function B with alarm and automatic reset
  • Adapted for NAMUR and amplified NPN or PNP sensor All the functions are programmed through a selector switch
  • In case of loss of power the relay changes state thus giving the alarm condition

A compact version of model CRT30 is also supplied. This consists of a threaded Inductive cylindrical switch type M30X1.5 having a sensing area and a complete programming control area.

ATEX Barrier’s:
DIN mounting equipment that offers the easiest and most efficient way to implement fail safe security in hazardous application areas. It offers the possibility to house 176 channels in only a one meter long DIN rail. high velocity signal repettion accuracy. LED power, signal status and line failure indicator. ATEX GAS-DUST fail safe according to 94/9/EC norm.

Power Supplies & Amplifiers:
They are supplied in compact plastic housing version with UNDECALplug. They can be applied with inductive, capacitive and
photoelectric sensors in D.C. current when a more powerful relay output signal is requested or timing function is needed.
