Improved clear label sensor

The Lion Precision LRD8200 Ultrasonic Clear Label Sensor has a new "Gap Quickset" feature for easier setup. The feature enables the user to place a gap in the sensor and with one click set the sensor's "Gap" setting. Previously, operators had to use the Up and Down arrows until a display indicated the proper setting. The function is not the same as a "Teach" function found on some sensors; it simply saves the operator the extra key presses of aligning the setup indicator.
While not a teach function, the new Gap Quickset does save the operator a little time by automatically adjusting for the gap that is currently in the sensor, saving the user a few button clicks. If the operator thinks the setting can be improved, he or she can just make a small adjustment with a few clicks until satisfied.
