Furthermore, the product features reliable and accurate detection of black and glossy objects, even in extremely inclined positions. In addition, the large working range of 0.1 to 10.1 meters qualifies the new product highlight for numerous complex detection and measuring tasks in modern automation systems.
The broad bandwidth of technical characteristics and functions provides this Transit Time Sensor with additional capabilities: an integrated PoE interface reduces expensive wiring effort to a minimum and the compact housing (81 x 55 x 30 mm) permits space-saving, easy installation. A built-in web server assures worldwide access to all sensor functions, for example in order to conduct location-independent diagnosis.
