In-Line General-Purpose Analog Laser Sensor with Low Cost & High Performance
The IA Series automatically controls and optimizes laser power according to the reflectance of the target. As a result, stable measurement is possible for almost any target from black rubber with a low reflectance to metal surfaces.
The head structure was redesigned to give the sensor the smallest body in its class and make it rugged enough to withstand almost any environment. In addition, the optical base is made of die cast steel for 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 x 48.5 mm x 22.6 mm* 1.42" x 1.91" x 0.89" and the head weight is just 50 g* (not including cable). This mimizes the required installation space and reduces the weight making it ideal for mounting on moving parts. *IA-030
If analog data is transmitted to a PLC, multilevel settings can be implemented to cover various workpieces, reducing labor-hours.
Because the output is analog, position information can be fed back and analog control can be implemented.
