IND-TOF-1, the new Time-of-Flight distance sensor with 12.5 meter detection capabilities has a dust and water resistant (IP65) enclosure and reliable data communications via RS485 interface – all in a compact form-factor (99g). Benefit from on-the-field programming using integrated teach-in buttons for quick and intuitive distance threshold set up.
■ Key Product Features
- Up to 12.5 meter range, Time-of-Flight technology
- IP65-rated enclosure
- 6 operating modes based on distance thresholds
- RS485 (Modbus) interface for distance-to-target feedback
- NO/NC switching outputs (0-24V) for threshold notification
- Integrated teach-in buttons for quick on-the-field programming
- Added value replacement to photocell sensors
- Compact form-factor, 99 grams
■ Potential Applications
■ Rugged, Water-resistant & Dust-proof
Benefit from an IP65-rated enclosure suitable to industry standards, such as equipment washdown requirements, as well as usage in outdoor applications.
■ 1 Sensor, 6 Modes
The sensor offers 6 operating modes with programmable distance thresholds, enabling users to address a variety of monitoring and distance sensing applications.
Setup trigger zones and obtain fast NO/NC (0-24V) proximity notifications whenever the light beam in the trigger zone is breached! Receive distance data via RS485 (Modbus) to know exactly at what distance the light beam has been broken.
■ Industrial Communication Protocol
The robust M12 connection ensures reliable distance data transfer via RS485 interface to a control unit, such as a PLC, and also provides a 0-24V switching output.
■ Quick & Intuitive Commissioning
Quickly set up one or several trigger zones for NO/NC proximity notification using the integrated teach-in buttons (PROG and SET)! Multi-color LEDs provide a visual confirmation of distance threshold breach, sensor power and live data stream.
■ Versatile & Cost-effective Installation
Benefit from a variety of installation options using an M4 screw set:
- Front-panel mounting
- Back panel mounting
- Angle mounting using a 90° bracket accessory
No additional components, such as reflectors or receivers, are required for the setup process and operation, making the installation both, cost and time-efficient!
