Newly launched Distance Measurement Sensors from Sick allow customers to upgrade from simple detection to measurement applications where space and budget previously prohibited.
The DT10 combines simple set-up with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability in an industry-standard housing. Indicates not only that a target is within the user-defined range, but also indicates where target is located. Proximity-style sensor offers 4mA to 20mA of output, with analog output preset from 50-500 mm. The DT20 has a longer measurement range of 90-1,000 mm and its metal housing is suitable for harsher environments. The unit’s infrared light source is suitable for more difficult applications requiring measurement in steam or fog.
