The LA170 and LA060 optical distance sensors from SIKO measure distances visually and are primarily used in automation processes. They employ the optical triangulation method. This is primarily used to measure distances of up to 200 mm. Based on a linear and position-sensitive detector, optical sensors measure the distances to the object, regardless of the reflected quantity of light.
The optical distance sensors can be incorporated into even narrow machine frames without a problem. With one touch of the button, the measurement range can be flexibly configured to the relevant application and, where applicable, even inverted. A switching window can also be adjusted as desired via an additional switching output. This helps ensure optimal ease of commissioning, guaranteed not least by the clearly visible LED.
