Multipurpose Sensor offers consistently stable detection.

Press Release Summary:

Multipurpose Sensor offers consistently stable detection.

Dec 10, 2013 - Supplied in metal housing with IP65/IP67 enclosure rating, LR-T Series owes its detection capability to Time of Flight (TOF) technology and custom IC. Detection is consistently stable, regardless of target surface type, color, and finish or such environmental factors as ambient light, mist, and excessive dust. While intuitive menus aid navigation through functions and settings, adjustable beam spot and application-specific detection modes promote operational flexibility.

LR-T Series – The New Standard in All-purpose Sensors

Itasca, IL —
Product overview
Keyence is excited to introduce the all new LR-T Series multi-purpose laser sensor. The LR-T is a perfect complement to the already solid Keyence sensor lineup with its superior detection stability, ease of operation, and unmatched versatility. Potentially limiting factors like target characteristics do not affect the LR-T’s detection ability allowing it to be utilized in a broad range of applications. It is also very durable and extremely user friendly making it suitable for virtually any sensing situation in any environment.

Superior Detection Ability
The LR-T’s high level of detection ability is due to its Time of Flight (TOF) technology and custom integrated circuit. When paired together, the LR-T provides consistently stable detection over long or short distances, regardless of target surface type, color, or finish. Even environmental factors like ambient light, mist, or excessive dust will not affect the LR-T’s detection ability.

Ease of Operation
Setup and operation have never been easier. The crisp and precise OLED display screen clearly shows the operator all of the important values needed for setup, calibration, and operation. Intuitive menus make navigation through functions and settings fast and simple. A large, bright indicator light that can be seen from any angle specifies the status of the sensor to the operator. Wasted time and added frustration caused by complicated menus and ambiguous buttons are now a thing of the past. With the LR-T, troubleshooting and calibration couldn’t be easier!

Unmatched Versatility
Advanced features like an adjustable beam spot and application specific detection modes allow the LR-T to be configured and tuned to maximize performance in any situation, while its long-distance capability allows the sensor to be mounted out of the way and still deliver superior performance. Additionally, the LR-T’s compact and durable metal housing boasts an IP65/IP67 enclosure rating, making it suitable for both wash-down and other harsh environments.

Where sensors often fall short, the Keyence LR-T simply excels with its superior detection capability, ease of operation, and unmatched versatility, making it The New Standard in all-purpose sensors!
