Compact colour-independent laser sensor with standard M18 thread and IO-Link in modern stainless steel housing
Long-range time of flight sensor for demanding applications
The new PMDLine sensor with a compact stainless steel housing is distinguished by a very long range. It uses the innovative on-chip time-offlight measurement system with PMD (photonic mixer device) technology. The class 1 laser sensor performs better than conventional red light sensors even in very demanding circumstances e.g. in detecting shiny metallic surfaces. The excellent reflection resistance and background suppression, together with a high excess gain, enable reliable operation. Typical applications are found in the automotive industry, conveying and materials handling.
The switch point is easily set using the three buttons on the unit or alternatively via IO-Link, which also allows read-out of the current distance value.
