Press Release Summary:
With measuring frequency up to 1 kHz and resolution up to 0.1 mm, ParCon Line Sensor enables web edges in packaging, textile, or paper industry to be measured precisely and positioned exactly. Additionally, object widths can be determined, regardless of objects' position within measuring field. Measuring 34 x 16.5 x 67 mm, sensor contains sender, receiver, optics for creating parallel beam, and evaluation electronics.
Original Press Release:
Long-Sighted - Line Sensor ParCon with Extended Measuring Distance
Measuring distance 0...200 mm
Parallel, homogeneous measuring field
High measuring frequency up to 1 kHz and resolution up to 0.1 mm
Easy and flexible installation
Baumer complements its line sensor family ParCon with a new long-range version for distances of up to 200 mm.
With the ParCon line sensors web edges in the packaging, textile, or paper industry can be measured precisely and therefore positioned exactly. Additionally, object widths can be determined, regardless of the objects' position within the measuring field. The result is issued as an analog value (4...20 mA) that can be processed easily. Thanks to the high measuring frequency of up to 1 kHz, it is possible to measure even rapidly moving objects precisely. At the same time the sensor operates with a resolution of up to 0.1 mm.
Due to the extended measuring distance, the sensor provides new possibilities, especially in applications where widths are measured. Furthermore, the sensor can be mounted more flexibly, e.g. when greater distances between the sensor and the object to be detected are required. The compact housing (34 x 16.5 x 67 mm) contains sender, receiver, special optics for creating the parallel beam as well as the evaluation electronics. Therefore, only a reflector is needed to operate the sensor. It is delivered with the sensor either as a reflector clamp or a self-adhesive reflecting foil. This concept offers a new, cost-effective alternative and facilitates the installation considerably.
