E3NC

Features

High precision laser sensor with separate amplifier

The separate amplifier laser sensors feature a comprehensive range of sensing heads with variable spot and advanced CMOS sensing heads for high precision positioning and demanding applications.
  • High detection stability independent from color or surface structure
  • Lens attachments for line beam applications
  • Easy installation due to adjustable focus and smart tune functions
  • Sensor heads with up to 1.2 m sensing distance covering a wide range of applications
  • High speed network connectivity to EtherCat fieldbus
