The compact, rugged and IP65-rated unit is accurate to ±4 cm in the first 4 metres and ±1% beyond 4 metres. The infrared-based ToF distance sensor comes with 6 operating modes based on distance thresholds and an RS485 (Modbus) interface for distance-to-target feedback. Integrated teach-in buttons allow users to perform quick on-the-field programming. The unit can be used for object presence detection and counting, object sorting for size, material level monitoring but also all sort of object position monitoring within specific tolerances or other distance measurement applications. The sensor operates from a 24V DC supply, drawing just 90mA.
