The DT50’s high-performance distance measurement capabilities help decrease operating and manufacturing costs by reducing scrap and increasing throughput. These lightweight, compact sensors feature an intuitive display and keypad with an easy-to-use push button for simple teach-in and programming. While the DT50 is useful for a variety of existing distance measurement applications, the sensors can also be used in new applications, such as elevator car positioning; level detection in hoppers, bins, silos, and chutes; and pre-process and closed loop feedback in metal forming applications.
