Expanding the company’s family of L-GAGE laser sensors, the LTF Series laser sensor features time-of-flight technology to ensure accurate distance measurements up to 12m. By emitting a pulsed light, the component measures the amount of time for the light to reflect off the object and return to the sensor to calculate the distance. This enables sensing in long-range applications, including loop control, part presence, or absence and fill level. Designed with a Class 2 laser emitter with a small, visible spot, the sensor provides repeatability of less than 3 mm, accuracy of ±10 mm, and the ability to detect dark targets past 7m and white targets at 12 meters. In addition to precision distance measurement, the LTF promise consistent detection of targets regardless of the angle, environmental conditions or ambient light resistance. To satisfy applications in harsh environmental conditions, the LTF features durable IP67-rated die-cast zinc housing.
