Laser Distance Sensor

AutomationDirect's OPT series distance sensors feature high-resolution CMOS line array technology.

November 5, 2013   Mike McLeod

AutomationDirect introduced its OPT series of short and long range distance photoelectric sensors. Available with either Class 1 or Class 2 laser options, the distance sensors are constructed with rectangular plastic housings and fitted with an M12 quick-disconnect. The short-range sensors utilize high-resolution CMOS line array technology, eliminating material, color and brightness-related measurement differences. Analog and switch output models are available with sensing ranges from 30 to 660mm, at up to 1,500 scans per second. The long-range sensors use the transit time measurement principle to measure the distance with a range up to 10 meters. Retro-reflective styles sense up to 100 meters. Analog and switch output models are available. The OPT photoelectric distance sensors are CE, RoHS, and cULus compliant.
