Giving up ruggedness for size is usually not a good tradeoff. SICK PowerProx photoelectric sensors avoid this compromise and provide reliable detection over long sensing ranges in a compact form factor.
The sensor’s time-of-flight laser scanning technology with Class 1 eye-safe lasers can reliably detect fast-moving objects, small and flat objects, and dark or shiny objects at sensing ranges between 5 cm and 3.8m.
Using the company’s proprietary VISTAL™ “tough as steel” housing, the sensor provides durability in tough environmental conditions and its compact size provides flexibility in system design. Sensor sub product classifications include Distance, Speed, Precision and Small families.
Target applications include: occupied bay and clearance detection, rapid counting in the packaging industry, and quality control in the automotive and parts supplier industries.
