Distance Sensor LA60

Optical distance sensors for the near zone

Keeping your optical distance!

To supplement its range of devices to measure lengths, angles, rotational speed and inclines, SIKO GmbH has now released an all-new set of distance sensors covering a wealth of applications. Both the LA170 and LA060 sensors measure distances visually and are primarily used in automation processes.

Diverse applicability for optical distance sensors
Sensors capable of measuring distance are needed throughout industry and the mechanical engineering sector. Whether the industry is packaging, paper, woodworking or textiles. Wherever automation processes exist there is also the need to measure clearances and distances, accurate to the nearest millimeter.

Sophisticated optical measurement technology
The optical LA170 and LA060 distance sensors employ the optical triangulation method. This is primarily used to measure distances of up to 200 mm. Based on a linear and position-sensitive detector, optical sensors measure the distances to the object, regardless of the reflected quantity of light.

Compact and easy to integrate
The new optical LA170 and LA060 distance sensors, part of the LinearLine series, come in an impressively compact package. Thanks to their slimline dimensions, they can be incorporated into even narrow machine frames without a problem.

Teach-in at the touch of a button
With one touch of the button, the measurement range can be flexibly configured to the relevant application and, where applicable, even inverted. A switching window can also be adjusted as desired via an additional switching output. This helps ensure optimal ease of commissioning, guaranteed not least by the clearly visible LED.
With its miniature housing, the LA60 distance sensor is particularly well suited for installation in confined spaces.
Besides the analog voltage output, the small distance sensors are equipped with a switching output and enable the definition of a switching window by means of two switching points. Owing to their ease of operation, these sensors are suitable for simple measuring and control tasks at distances up to 80 mm. 

Profile LA60:

  • Measuring range 20 … 80 mm
  • Analog output 1 … 10 V
  • Ultra-compact ABS housing

  • Capable of being integrated easily
  • High precision and high repeat accuracy - especially for feedback control problems

  • Resolution 0.68mm
  • Two adjustable switching points as window mode for 2-point controls

  • Teach-in operation
