Photoelectric sensor transmits data interference-free with light

04 November 2014

Leuze electronic has developed a data transmission photoelectric sensor that, in addition to having a transmission rate of 100 Mbit/sec, is said to set new standards with respect to usability.

The DDLS 500 sensor can transmit all common Ethernet protocols without time delay up to a distance of 120m, including PROFINET, Ethernet IP, EtherCat, Ethernet TCP/IP or Ethernet UDP. 

For quick inspection of the received signal level, the sensor features a LED display that can be easily recognised at a distance of up to 120m which helps to simplify maintenance and diagnosis. 

Through the modular basic design, the devices can be flexibly arranged. This applies to the operating ranges, heating and the integrated laser alignment aid, which greatly simplifies alignment over long distances. An integrated bubble level and the mounting plate with spring-loaded wobble elements  are also said to contribute to simple alignment by just one person.
