A differential output is provided for situations where output connections must traverse longer distances through machines. The CPL230 has color-coded channels and probes for machine installation. Systems ship with 15 kHz bandwidth. Users can access an internal dip-switch to set the bandwidth to 15 kHz, 10 kHz, 1 kHz, and 100 Hz. The bandwidth selection allows users to opt for higher resolutions or higher speeds. It has a measurement range of 10µm to 12.5 mm and a differential output of ±10V. It has an operating temperature range of 4 to 50 C.
