TR-Electronic adds ProfiNET to absolute laser distance sensor

17 August 2012

The new ProfiNET LE-200 laser distance measurement system from TR-Electronic provides a communication option for real-time, closed loop distance feedback applications.

Incorporating TR’s phase-shift differential technology, the ProfiNET LE-200 provides accurate and reliable positioning technology with one of today’s leading industrial Ethernet interfaces.

The ProfiNET enabled LE-200 laser distance measurement system provides a new interface option for challenging, longer-distance applications where traditional technology cannot deliver.

Laser-based measuring devices have generally been implemented with high-speed interfaces such as SSI or fieldbus technologies to provide the necessary response time for precision measurement. The LE-200 was the first long-range laser on the market available with EtherNET/IP and TR-Electronic continues to support all leading industrial Ethernet protocols with the release of the ProfiNET version.

The new ProfiNET option provides a clear migration path for those customers looking to maintain their control hardware platform. The LE-200 is also available with a variety of protocol options including EtherNET/IP, DeviceNET, Profibus, Interbus and CAN interfaces.

The ProfiNET LE-200 laser is a standard position sensing product with a measuring range of 0.2 – 240m. It has an accuracy of +/- 2mm and is available with cooling and heating options for the most extreme environments.
