Turck presents the new LTF12 laser distance sensor from Banner Engineering. The sensor detects objects from 0.05 to 12 m regardless of their material properties and color. Even with an acute angle of view or very bright ambient light up to 40,000 lux, the LTF12 delivers precise and reliable measurement results.
For rough industrial use
The large display of the laser sensor shows the distance to the detected object in the first line, which makes it easier to set up the sensor in the application. The second line shows the value of the analog output. Regardless of the analog output, the user can also use a bipolar switching output. With its stable zinc pressure housing and protection class IP67, the sensor is designed for harsh industrial use. The LTF12 is optimally equipped for distance measurements and positioning tasks in high-bay warehouses, crane systems or on self-propelled machines. Level measurements or the presence control of objects are also possible applications.
Turck will in future add a device with two bipolar switching outputs and a variant with IO-Link communication to the variant with analog output and bipolar switching output. (jv)
The laser triangulation sensors Opto NCDT 1420 from Micro-Epsilon are now also available with laser class 1. In this laser class, the radiated power is max. 390 /u00b5W. This eliminates the protective measures associated with laser class 2
The laser sensors of the PT44 series from IPF Electronic have grown. The PT440303 and PT440304 are now supplementing the existing devices with extended measuring ranges from 120 to 280 mm and 200 to 600 mm
The sensor technology provider Contrinex is launching a complete new series consisting of 118 different ultrasonic sensors for different applications. The sensors from the Swiss manufacturer not only detect objects, but also indicate the absolute distance between the sensor and the object
The SM 34 series of inductive displacement sensors from AB J /u00f6dden have a diameter of only 10 mm and measure up to 20 mm. Contactless measurement is a major advantage of inductive displacement transducers and thus enables use, for example, in machines for material testing and on vibration test tables
With the new Q4X, Turck is adding a laser distance sensor to its optosensor range for demanding applications. The laser sensor works very reliably even at acute detection angles, bright ambient light, transparent or black objects
