reliable, reproducible measurements for the factory automation
The distance sensors of the LAS-T5 series from WayCon Positionsmesstechnik enable reliable, reproducible measurements, e.g. for factory automation, in keeping with the Industry 4.0 theme. Alongside positional measurements in industrial automation or distance measurements in quality control, the sensors are also suitable for measuring the thicknesses of various objects. Depending on the model, measuring ranges between 30 and 600 mm are available. Using the simple teach button process, the desired range can be easily adjusted.
The robust sensors are classified as Protection Class IP67, are vibration resistant and are highly reliable, even in ambient light. Their strong performance is evident in the fast measurement frequency of 1 kHz (1 measured value per millisecond). The analogue output signal (4...20 mA or 0...10 V) allows connection with virtually all receiving electronics worldwide. The sensor is automatically recognised by modern measurement data collection systems like QuantumX by HBM and can be used immediately and with any chosen PC software – “plug in & measure”. For this purpose, WayCon provides the corresponding pre-assembled sensor cable with a sub-HD plug-in connector and a programmed TEDS chip which contains all the relevant sensor information. This is of course available for all positional sensors in the range. As it is possible to integrate the LAS-T5 into any desired measurement and automation systems, Waycon is paving the way for versatile, modern uses in Development and Cloud, Production and Industry 4.0 or Monitoring and Asset Management.
