Wide area sensors for motion detection
AutomationDirect’s wide area sensors are designed for object detection and are multi-beam, through-beam sensors with emitter and receiver elements used for detecting the presence of any object by sensing the light beam intensity returning from the receiver. The area sensors have an IEC IP67 ingress protection rating. These MD area sensors are available in basic and advanced versions. CX0 Series basic area sensors have a sensing distance of up to 6m and a detection height up to 320mm. CX2 Series advanced area sensors also have a sensing distance of up to 6 m with detection height of up to 960 mm and offer analog outputs and a blanking function. Teach-in functions with two levels of adjustment are used for product setting, adjustment and blanking. LEDs indicate the sensor status, alignment, optics condition and faults. The blanking function (CX2 series) allows the height of the active optic window to be adapted to the application by eliminating ("blanking") pairs of beams and can be useful in specific situations.
