Distance sensors

New DT50 distance-measurement sensors feature a high-definition distance-measurement platform that provides greater precision at longer sensing distances and an industry-leading operating temperature range and ambient light tolerance. The sensors provide high-performance distance measurement capabilities that help decrease operating and manufacturing costs by reducing scrap and increasing throughput, the co. says. The lightweight, compact sensors feature an intuitive display and keypad with a pushbutton for simple teach-in and programming. This new family of sensors can be used in applications such as elevator car positioning; level detection in hoppers, bins, silos and chutes; and pre-process and closed-loop feedback in metal forming.
