In-Line, General-Purpose Analogue Laser Sensor with Low Cost & High Performance
The IA Series automatically controls and optimises laser power according to the reflectance of the target. As a result, stable measurement is possible for almost any target from black rubber to shiny metal surfaces.
The head structure was redesigned to give the sensor the smallest body in its class and make it tough enough to withstand almost any environment. In addition, the optical base is made of die cast SUS304 for added strength and protection.
The IA Series makes use of a unique aspherical lens to achieve the
smallest head housing in its class. Head dimensions are 36 mm
× 48.5 mm × 22.6 mm* and the head weight is just 50 g*
(not including cable). Minimising the installation space required
and reducing the weight, make it ideal for mounting on moving
If analogue data is transmitted to a PLC, multilevel setting can be implemented to cover various workpieces, enabling a reduction in labor-hours.
Because the output is analogue, position information can be fed back and analogue control can be implemented.
