Datalogic area detection and dimensional measurement are made with light arrays, from 100 to 2500mm controlled height, low or high resultion, operating distance up to 5m, analog output, serial and Ethernet interfaces.
The photoelectric light grids of Datasensor AS1 series are crossed-beam area sensors able to detect all objects, with even 0.2mm thickness, inside a 100mm height, over operating distances reaching 3m between emitter and receiver. Datalogic AS1 area sensors represent the ideal solution for the detection of very small objects, even when passing in different positions inside the controlled height and width. Versions with trimmer adjustment and optic synchronism between emitter and receiver unit are available.
Datasensor DS1 AREAscan series are compact multibeam light grids suitable for the detection and measurement of objects with different shapes and dimensions. Different models are available with 100, 150 and 300 mm controlled height, 4 mm resolution and operating distance reaching 4 m. Datalogic versions with trimmer adjustment. The electronics is fully integrated and so no external drivers are required.
The AREAscan family of Datasensor DS2 series covers controlled heights ranging from 15 to 250 cm, with 5 m operating distances for 6 mm resolution versions, or 10 m for 25 mm resolution versions. The measurement configuration can be set manually thanks to internal dip-switches, or using graphic interface from remote PC on the serial port. Once loaded the program on the flash memory, the device functions in the stand-alone mode. The serial interface transmits the measurement in a binary or ASCII code, the operating status control as well as the setting of the different baud-rate versions. Datalogic DS2 light arrays suits different height or dimensional measurement applications in general, in automatic material handling.
The AREAscan light grids of Datasensor DS3 series are optoelectronic multibeam devices that can be used to detect, measure and control the position of objects, also transparent and small. Models with 150, 300, 450 or 600 mm detection field height are available, as well as presenting 0.2 - 0.6 m or 0.6 - 1.5 m operating distances. Internal dip-switches for configuration are available on all models, together with the Teach-in setting button with Remote and self-calibration function, LED indicators for the signalling of the device operating and auto-diagnostic status. The synchronisation via cable of the emitter and receiver units guarantees high optic and electromagnetic interference immunity. The integrated electronics eliminates the need for an external control unit. The compact dimensions (35 x 40 mm), easy installation and excellent performances make Datalogic AREAscan light grids particularly suitable to the many different applications of automatic packaging and industrial automation in general.
Built in a 50 x 50 mm standard compact housing, Datasensor S65-Z series offers a retroreflex line sensor for accurate measurements of the centre or edge position and width of objects. Datalogic series results to be particular suitable for a wide range of industrial automation applications, such as packaging, printing assembling on automatic machines. The detection is made on a reflecting tape, supplied with the sensor, positioned behind the object, with a 150 mm maximum measurement field width and a 200 mm operating distance. The 4-20 mA analogue output is proportional to the measurement, while the digital output, PNP or NPN according to the model, is activated when the measured value is included inside the interval fixed by the operator via teach-in. An alarm signal is activated when the luminous intensity received is weak, as for example in presence of dirty lenses. The setting is accomplished through three push-buttons present on the control panel, together with the output status LED, two LEDs signalling the operating mode, an alarm LED and a 4-digit display for the visualisation of the measurement and sensor configuration messages.
