This compact long distance laser sensor uses time of flight technology to detect presence of a target from as far as 4.5 meters from the target. The TOF-L series has a very stable and repeatable detection allowing for detection of different reflective material at the same distance while ignoring background.
Long-distance sensors are often large and heavy. The FASTUS TOF-L series of photoelectric sensors features a built-in amplifier and allows for a high-sensitivity APD, high-speed responses of 0.5 ms, and detection distances up to 4.5m.
The TOF principle takes the measurement of the time it takes a pulse-emitted laser to hit a target and return and uses it to calculate distance. This provides strong resistance to influences from the target's surface conditions and produces stable detection.
At just 17 x 32.8 x 44.4 mm, the TOF-L series of photoelectric sensors offers long distance detection in an incredibly compact design.
By relying on distance from a workpiece, rather than differences in the amount of light received, the TOF-L series is capable of long-distance detection with a variety of workpieces.
The TOF-L series is capable of low hysteresis for white objects and delivers level-difference detection from remote locations. The sensors also reduce black/white errors without sacrificing detection accuracy.
The TOF-L series sensor achieves long-distance detection with a Class 1 laser that is safe on the eyes and features a clearly visible spot beam for easy axis adjustments.
