Accurate position sensing

21 September 2017

Material handling and automated pallet storage systems require robust and reliable distance and location measurements for an efficient system. The FLS Dimetix laser sensor measures over long distances with a high degree of accuracy and reliability.

With a measuring range up to 500m and repeatability of ±0.15mm (1sigma) the FLS-C-10 is a proven choice for position sensing in a variety of industrial applications requiring monitoring of position, level, or size.

Properly integrated, they are also rugged enough to withstand extreme environments from -40ºC to +50ºC and are often used in steel/glass production facilities.

There are also a wide range of output options such as 4~20mA, RS232C and SSI as standard which are all programable for process control. There are even three digital outputs, two of which can be used as relay or error alarms.
