The new laser sensor LE550 from Turck Optolelektronik partner Banner Engineering Combines range, repeatability and precision with a user-friendly two-line display. The 8 digit display indicates the exact millimeter distance to the detection object and the value of the analog output. Using the buttons next to the display, the user can easily parameterize all functions of the sensor and, if desired, also invert the display direction.
The precise CMOS receiver element of the laser sensor detects many different surfaces in the measuring range from 100 to 1000 mm, from black rubber to shiny metal. Typical applications for the LE550 include roll diameter detection, slack control, and object measurement and positioning. The switching and analogue outputs of the sensor can be programmed independently. To increase the precision, several sensors can be installed in the immediate vicinity. The die-cast housing meets IP67 and NEMA 6 protection for use in harsh environments.
