Laser Displacement Sensors

August 13, 2007
The VDM35 Series Laser Displacement Sensors are available in 6-meter diffused and 30-meter retro-reflective modes. These distance measurement sensors offer fully scaleable 4 to 20 milliamperes analog outputs and dual discrete PNP switch points, along with simple push-button programming. Other features include an eye-safe Class 1 infrared laser for sensing, a built-in Class 2 visible red laser for alignment and a 5-pin M12 x 1 micro connector. VDM sensors provide an analog output (4 to 20 milliamperes) proportionate to how close or far an object or reflector is from the sensor. VDM sensors monitor and measure the distance between products to keep equal spacing and positioning, making them well suited for use in automotive manufacturing. Additional applications include liquid level control, bin level control, profiling and error proofing.
