LM sensor for precise applications

October 2019 Sensors & Transducers

Banner’s LM series of precision measurement sensors is now available in an even more precise model that features a 0,002 mm analog resolution at a range of 40-80 mm. The new LM80 model also features a smaller spot size (less than 1 mm at all measurement ranges) to detect even smaller features and take more measurements over the face of the target for more precise profiling.

The sensors provide reliable quality control and repeatable measurement of real-world targets with varying colours and reflectivity. In addition, they feature a thermally stable design that resists temperature changes, as well as enhanced mounting stability, for high accuracy in the toughest environments. The new LM80 has a temperature effect of ±0,006 mm/°C.

This is imperative for high precision applications since even a few degrees of temperature change can cause other sensors’ measurement error to double.

All-in-one device

With IO-Link communication, users can remotely monitor sensor performance, easily identify and analyse trends in inspection results, and predict when maintenance is needed so that problems like a dirty lens can be resolved before sensor failure.

Featuring a fast 0,5 ms response speed and 0,25 ms sampling rate, LM sensors reliably solve high-speed applications with fast-moving targets. They also provide discrete, analog and IO-Link capabilities, which enables flexibility and reduces inventory requirements.

LM sensors can be programmed via IO-Link or an optional remote sensor display (RSD). The RSD enables remote setup and monitoring, and it stores up to six configurations to facilitate product changeover and simplify device replacement. It can also remain inline to monitor sensors in difficult-to-reach locations, or it can be removed after configuration.
