Flexible, precise, compact – LAS laser sensors


WayCon offers the correct laser sensor for all application areas and industries with its LAS sensors

With its LAS sensor series, WayCon Positionsmesstechnik GmbH offers sensors which can meet any specific requirement: whether extremely compact or specifically for black surfaces, for long range in small design, or to be universal and of good value.

Thanks to the robust and compact design, measurements are possible even in the tightest spaces. The laser sensors are ideally suited for thickness measurements, quality control and process supervision in machine construction, automation, in chemical industry or medical technology.

Amongst other features of the series are the excellent measurement characteristics: dark objects are measurable, as are objects behind a transparent sheet, and highly accurate distance measurements are feasible on various surfaces. As the series includes point lasers as well as line lasers, measurements on uneven surfaces do not present any difficulty at all.

The large measuring range of the series, from 10 mm to 13,000 mm, offers many application possibilities with convincing accuracy. A very high resolution of up to 2 µm can be obtained in small measuring ranges, as well as a linearity constant of up to ±6µm. The individual parameterisation via the Teach-in function affords the user further flexibility.

The robust sensors with protection class IP 67 are to be used in a temperature range between 0°C and 50°C and are protected against reverse polarity and short circuit. The analogue output signals are issued at 4...20 mA and/or 0...10 V.

With all of these features, the LAS series from WayCon offers the appropriate sensor for every application. The common feature to all of the sensors is their great value for money.
