IDEC - Application Photoelectric

AS1 Series

The photoelectric light grids of the AS1 series are crossed-beam area sensors able to detect all objects,as small as a 0.2mm thickness, inside a 100mm height, over operating distances reaching 3m between emitter and receiver.

DS1 Series

The DS1 AREAscan™ sensor is a compact multibeam light grid suitable for detection and measurement of objects with different shapes and sizes. DS1 is available with 100mm height, 5mm resolution and an operating distance of 2.1m.

DS2 Series

The AREAscanTM family of the DS2 series covers controlled heights ranging from 15 to 250 cm, with 5 m operating distances for 6 mm resolution versions, or 10 m for 25 mm resolution versions. The measurement configuration can be set manually thanks to internal dip-switches, or using graphic interface from remote PC on the serial port. Once loaded the program on the flash memory, the device functions in the stand-alone mode. The serial interface transmits the measurement in a binary or ASCII code, the operating status control as well as the setting of the different baud-rate versions. The DS2 light arrays suits different height or dimensional measurement applications in general, in automatic material handling.

DS3 Series

The AREAscanTM light grids of the DS3 series are optoelectronic multi-beam devices that can be used to detect, measure and control the position of objects, also transparent and small. Models with 150, 300, 450 or 600 mm detection field height are available, as well as presenting 0.2 - 0.6 m or 0.6 - 1.5 m operating distances. Internal dip-switches for configuration are available on all models, together with the Teach-in setting button with Remote and self-calibration function, LED indicators for the signaling of the device operating and auto-diagnostic status.

LD46 Series

Luminescence sensors emit ultraviolet (UV) light and receive visible light reflected from luminescent surfaces. This technology allows the detection of fluorescent marks (even invisible to the human eye) on any object independent of its material, color or distance, inside the operating range. In addition, it ignores light interference or reflections from non-luminescent surfaces, like glass, mirrors or shiny metal surfaces.

LD50 Series

The LD50 luminescence sensor line offers the best solution for all the applications where cost reduction is requested, without compromising the excellent detection performances. The optimised optics of these sensors, together with the powerful UV LED emission and the high receiving sensitivity of visibile light, allow the detection of the weakest luminescence level, like in case of small flourescent markings, with the highest immunity from the surface colour or reflectivity variations.

LDu Series

The LDμ luminescence sensors emit ultraviolet light and detect only visible light converted and reflected from fluorescent objects or marks, independent from the background’s color and surface. A microprocessor controls and synchronizes the emission, reception and output circuits offering a completely automatic setting. The LDμ sensors can reach a 75 mm operating distance and a 2 kHz switching frequency, thanks to the UV High-Power emission. Focusing lenses and special fiber-optics able to replace the lens are available as accessories.

S50U Series

The UV light LED emission detects any luminescent reference, even on very reflective surfaces, such as ceramics, metal or mirrored glass. The EASYtouchTM setting procedures fixes automatically the best detection conditions, simply by pressing the teach-in pushbutton once, with the luminescent object present. By pressing the teach-in push-button and holding it down until the green light on the rear of the sensor flashes, with the luminescent object present and then pressing the button again in the presence of a luminescent reference you wish to ignore, a higher level of accuracy is obtained.

S65 Series

The S65-V color sensor offers the best performance for color detection in a standard 50 x 50 x 25mm housing. The sensor can memorize and recognize 3 colors on 3 independent channels. C (chromaticity) or C+I (chromaticity and intensity) detection algorithm and tolerance levels can be selected for each color. Additional functions include keylock and synchronization with external events through a specific input.

S80 Series

The S80 series, in a compact sturdy metal housing, offers an innovative class 2 laser distance sensor with time-of-flight measurement. This technology, based on the measurement of the time between the emission and receipt of the laser light pulses, ensures accurate distance detection.

S81 Series

S81 distance sensor line offers the best solution for all the applications where cost reduction is requested, without compromising the detection or measurement performances.

SR21 Series

The SR21 series slot sensors, with a 2mm slot width, provide a 12-bit (4096 step) resolution, a 20μs response time and a switching frequency of 25kHz.
