Miniature sensor with IO-Link - FT 10 series
The miniature sensors from the FT 10 series from SensoPart have a compact design with dimensions of 21.1 x 14.6 x 8 mm. The FT 10 series consists of diffuse photocells with adjustable background suppression or a fixed switching point, reflector photocells and photocells with separate transmitter and receiver.
The photocells are equipped with red LED, red laser or with Blue Light technology. Read more about miniature sensors.
Easy to set up and read out
SensoPart has also added a miniature sensor FT 10 series with IO-Link to the range. The sensor can realize a very accurate distance measurement with a range of 10 to 70 mm. The sensor can easily be adjusted and read out using the IO-Link. Read more about IO-Link.
Features FT 10-series photocells with IO-Link:
- Smallest distance (analog) sensor in the market
- Size: 21.1 x 14.6 x 8 mm
- IO-Link for real time data
- Very accurate hysteresis and resolution
No electromagnetic influences from outside
Via the integrated IO-Link interface, the distance is sent as a 3-byte digital value. As a result, this value is no longer influenced by any electromagnetic influences from outside. This is in contrast to a conventional analogue signal. The spot size with a size of 3 by 1 mm is very small, suitable for, among other things, accurate positioning applications for robots. In view of the small size, the sensor is particularly suitable as an alternative to fiber sensors, where the FT 10 does not need an external amplifier, but the fibre optics do.
