Distance Measurement Sensor
August 29, 2008
The DS30 distance measurement sensor is a proximity style sensor with a single PNP or NPN output that detects targets within its 2-meter range. It can detect flat, black and shiny targets at the same range repeatedly. Applications for the sensor include pallet bay/bin empty/full detection; loop control for web materials such as paper, plastic, rubber and metals; and detecting parcels, packages and objects with shiny surfaces. The time-of-flight sensor provides background suppression and a small black/white shift. The sensor’s hybrid laser generates high-gain reserves under dirty conditions for solid detection in industrial environments.
