OPTICAL SENSORS

FOR

CONTACTLESS DISTANCE MEASUREMENT

RC models are suitable for both single-axis measurements and measurements on objects that move past the sensor

RC sensors have a positive slope with increasing displacement. In contrast to the D models, they are monovalent with no near/far optics peak range and do not have to be calibrated to the target surface. 

These sensors are suitable for measuring applications with static, moving or rotating objects to be measured, e.g. B. discs and shafts, or for the measurement of parts during the process.

  • DC-20KHz is standard
  • DC-200KHz or higher is optional
  • DC-100 Hz provides the best resolution

Standard analog sensor units include:

  • Electronics with 0 to +5 VDC output
  • 1 meter long fiber optic cable

Distance Sensors Reflection Compensated

Analog sensors are fast responding units ideal for relative motion measurements in dynamic applications with speeds up to 1 MHz.
