Joining Keyence’s sensor lineup is the LR-T series of multipurpose laser sensors, which employs the time-of-flight detection method to achieve reliable detection over long or short distances, regardless of target surface type, color, or finish. Even environmental factors, like ambient light, mist, and excessive dust, do not affect the LR-T’s detection ability.
The LR-T can detect targets over a range of 0.06 m to 5 m (0.2 ft to 16.4 ft). It offers such features as an adjustable beam spot and application-specific detection modes that allow it to be configured and tuned to maximize performance in any situation. Long-distance capability enables the sensor to be mounted out of the way, and its compact, durable metal housing has an IP65/IP67 rating, making it suitable for wash-down and other harsh environments.
An easy-to-read OLED display screen shows the values needed for setup, calibration, and operation, while intuitive menus ease navigation through functions and settings. A large indicator light that can be seen from any angle gives visual confirmation of the sensor’s operating status.
