New from SICK (UK) the WLL180T photoelectric sensor with fibre-optic cable boasts a response time of just 16Âµs and has been developed to enable rapid, reliable object detection of fast production processes, even in hard
The WLL180T, which can detect even the fastest process operations - up to 31,250 per second, without the loss of reliability - is suitable for use in the semiconductor, electronics, and pharmaceutical industries, as well as in assembly handling and robotics. 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.
