Distances measured and transmitted directly in digital form
The DTL-C55 DISTANCE sensor (50 mm x 50 mm x 23 mm) uses the optical Time-of-Flight (TOF) method to measure distances up to 5000 mm. As contactless measurement devices, photoelectric distance sensors are suitable for numerous areas of application. Distance measurement is largely independent of target color or surface characteristics and repeatability is high. Detected distances can be output via an adjustable analog output and, for a digital output, a switching window of acceptance may be configured by teach-in. In the IO-Link version, measurements are passed directly to the control system as millimeter values in digital form, with no need for an additional analog-to-digital converter and no signal drop for long lines. The sensors are extremely water-resistant with an IP67/IP69K enclosure rating and Ecolab certification.
