The LD30 series photoelectric laser sensors with integrated IO-Link communications feature background suppression based on the time-of-flight (ToF) sensing principle. These sensors have a sensing range of up to 1,000 mm for either dark or white objects. The background suppression has been increased four times compared to previous versions. The sensors come in a compact housing, making it suitable for locations with limited space. They can be used in an IO-Link network or standard non IO-Link systems. When they are used in an IO-Link network, data points such as the actual distance to the target can be obtained.
