SICK has rounded out its distance measurement portfolio with the DT 10 compact distance sensor in the W 18 photoelectric switch housing.
The compact distance sensor is designed for distance measurement at ranges between 50 mm and 500 mm. Measured values are transmitted via a 4 to 20 mA analogue output. In addition, the teachable switching output also allows transmission of a freely definable signal value.
A further highlight: the basic functional parameters of the DT 10 are given fixed settings at the factory, so the sensor can also be put into operation without a user manual.
Versatile mounting and connector technology.
The DT 10 provides the versatile mounting and connection technology familiar from the W18 series of photoelectric switches, among others. Thus there is nothing to prevent the rapid installation and commissioning of the distance sensor, e.g. for detecting filling levels in hoppers, or for regulating slack in loops or webs.
