Distance Sensor operates independent of target color.

Press Release Summary:




Featuring 50-400 mm measuring range and 0.1 mm resolution, FADK 14 may be used wherever distances need to be measured and objects have to be positioned precisely. Red light LED distance sensor, available with 2 output versions (current or voltage output), takes measurements at speeds that allow use in applications involving dynamic movement. Resistant to dirt, unit integrates IO-link communications standard and offers measurement largely independent of object material/color.



Original Press Release:



Distance Sensor - Measuring and Positioning Independent of Colors



Big measuring range of 50 to 400 mm
High accuracy
High measuring speed for dynamic movements
Integrated communications standard IO-link

With the FADK 14, Baumer extends its product range with its first red light LED distance sensor. This sensor offers good value for money, and thanks to the integrated communications standard IO-link it is very well prepared for the future.

Wherever distances have to be measured reliably and objects have to be positioned precisely, the FADK 14 is the sensor to choose. In a measuring range of 50 to 400 mm it reaches a resolution of 0.1 mm. The measurement is to a large extent independent of the material and color of the object. Moreover, the sensor is very resistant to dirt. The high measuring speed allows the sensor to be used in extremely dynamic applications. The FADK 14 is available with two output versions (current or voltage output).

With the launch of this new sensor, Baumer rounds off its successful sensor series 14. From red light diffuse sensors to laser diffuse sensors for detecting foils, this series offers a multitude of sensor versions, which offers the user maximum flexibility.
