AutomationDirect adds photoelectric laser distance sensors
Cumming, GA — October 30, 2013 … AutomationDirect has expanded its photoelectric sensor offering to include OPT series short and long range distance sensors. Available with either Class 1 or Class 2 laser options, the distance sensors are constructed with rectangular plastic housings and fitted with an M12 quick-disconnect.
OPT short-range diffuse distance sensors utilize high-resolution CMOS line array technology, eliminating material, color and brightness-related measurement differences. Analog and switch output models are available with sensing ranges from 30 to 660mm, at up to 1,500 scans per second. OPT short-range series photoelectric sensor prices start at $319.
OPT long-range photoelectric sensors use the transit time measurement principle to measure the distance between the sensor and the object. Diffuse styles have a sensing range up to 10 meters; retro-reflective styles sense up to 100 meters. Analog and switch output models are available. OPT long-range series photoelectric sensor prices start at $295.
Backed by a one-year warranty, the OPT photoelectric distance sensors are CE, RoHS, and cULus compliant, are in stock and available for same-day shipping.
