Combined with a new dual detection sensing principle, Carlo Gavazzi’s LD30..PBR…IO photoelectric laser sensors can detect clear materials without a reflector. Due to easy and complete customization of the sensors, these sensing principles (and more) can be adjusted based on customer needs. This flexibility within a single sensor reduces inventory while increasing accessibility on-hand for a variety of applications.
Developed to operate in both IO-Link environments as well as in traditional automation systems, the LD30..PBR…IO offers four unique, predefined, and selectable application functions: speed and length, pattern recognition, divider function, and object and gap monitoring. These integrated functions help customers with additional data and decentralized controls, which are essential for optimizing the production process, and simplifying the machine control system layout. In addition, the focus is on predictive maintenance with features such as: dual detection, quality of run (QoR), quality of teach (QoT), temperature and dust alarms, excess gain and auto adjustment. These are valuable tools to avoid downtime through early warning and even allow scheduling of planned maintenance prior to failure.
Main technical features include:
• Class 1, Ø 1mm visible red laser beam
• 100mm, 300mm, and 600mm sensing distances
• Selectable background suppression, foreground suppression, or dual detection sensing
• IP69K ECOLAB approved stainless steel AISI316L housing or IP67 plastic housing
• Predefined selectable application functions
• Easily configurable using IO-Link ver 1.1
