SICK launches ultra-fast photoelectric sensor

27 April 2010

SICK (UK) has added the WLL180T photoelectric sensor, with fiber-optic cable to its range of optical sensors. Boasting a response time of just 16µs (up to 31,250 operations per second), the sensor enables rapid, reliable object detection of fast production processes, even in hard-to-reach machine and system locations.

The sensor is able to achieve high scanning ranges, of up to 20m, even in ambient conditions. Featuring high system reserves, the powerful light beam can penetrate dust clouds, spray, mist or water jets, to reliably detect objects. It works effectively as a stand-alone unit or in bus mode, allowing interference-free configuration with up to 16 sensors, which can be simultaneously programmed in a single action.

The WLL180T features a dual digital display and an intuitive operating menu, making it easy to install and operate.
