With the LES 36, Leuze electronic now makes possible the simultaneous measurement of an object's height, width and position with just one sensor.
Previously, two sensor pairs and complex software programming were typically necessary to accomplish this. Now, just a single LES 36 Line Edge Sensor suffices. This sensor does not operate using individual light spots. Instead, it projects a light beam by means of laser line lighting. Both the laser as well as the receiver are housed in a compact, easy-to-install unit. With the LES 36, the user has in his or her hands a balanced system for object measurement in the millimeter range. It offers an exceptionally large measurement range extending up to 800 mm in depth and up to 600 mm in width. Four measurement windows and 16, predefined, freely configurable inspection tasks facilitate flexible customization to applications without complicated programming. The preprocessed measurement values are output directly in millimeters via Ethernet, PROFIBUS or analog interface.
