Sick’s LUT8 and LUT9 luminescent sensors for luminescent mark detection applications react to luminescent pigments, which are activated by a UV light source in the sensor.
The cost-competitive, high-performance sensors provide longer sensing ranges and more selection models than previous versions. The LUT9 also offers selectable dual light ports, IO-Link for remote monitoring and 2-point teach-in. The LUT8 and LUT9 offer wavelength adjustments to easily identify difficult-to-detect luminescence characteristics, particularly luminescent marks in recycled materials. Different light spot patterns and a high visibility bar graph display, which illuminates when the higher luminescent intensity is detected, provide increased installation flexibility. LUT9 versions with IO-Link capabilities provide continuous monitoring adjustments to process parameters, enabling simple, cost-effective diagnostics even from remote locations.
