SICK: Photoelectric sensors for long sensing ranges

SICK has launched the PowerProx photoelectric sensor for reliable detection over long sensing ranges; sensors use time-of-flight laser scanning technology with Class 1 eye-safe lasers to reliably detect fast-moving objects, small and flat objects, and dark or shiny objects, at sensing ranges between 5 cm and 3.8 m.

In addition, up to eight switching points can be defined via IO-Link, a standardized IO technology for communication with sensors and actuators.With four variants (Distance, Speed, Precision and Small), PowerProx sensors can be used in a variety of applications, including rapid counting in the packaging industry.
