Contact digital sensor

Contact digital sensor

Keyence’s GT2 “All-in-One” contact digital sensor adopts the world’s first scale-shot system to provide the highest precision in its class (0.1μ resolution, 1.0μ accuracy), says the company. Maintaining the “No Error” feature from its predecessor, the GT2 is designed to prevent data from being lost due to rapid spindle movement during production line and other high-speed applications. All measurement is performed in the compact GT amplifier requiring no PLC or external data processing.

A single unit can connect up to 11 sensor heads for a space saving compact installation When several amplifiers are connected, the GT2 Series enables automatic calculation simply by selecting a calculation mode. The analog I/O card used with conventional sensors is not required for the GT2, which further reduces labor time and total cost Equipment status can be quickly checked by looking at the bar indicator that displays green when the data is within its limits, and red when the values are out of spec. Simple tolerance setting at the touch of a pushbutton reduces the number of steps compared with conventional models A variety of displays, brackets, and mounts (DIN-rail, compact panel, large display panel, and pulse output) are available to accommodate user needs to simplify amplifier installation and setup.
