Proximity switch with long scanning distance
The FT 92 is characterised by a very long range and is suitable for numerous
applications in industrial automation, e.g. for small-part detection, for checking presence or for positioning tasks.
Typical FT 92
The FT 92 proximity switch has been specially designed for detection tasks with long distances to the process: the sensor, equipped with an infrared laser (Laser Class 1) reaches ranges of up to 6 m. Whereby its measurement principle of infrared pulse time-of-flight technology guarantees particularly precise background suppression, and thus reliable detection even against highly reflective or glossy backgrounds – as well as absolute immunity to ambient light.
Very long range
Precise background suppression with time-of-flight technology
User-friendly fine adjustment of sensor with pilot laser
Rapid and easy adjustment via teach-in
Safe operation thanks to Laser Class 1
Robust housing/plug unit
Well thought-out mounting accessories
Long distances not only require excellent optical performance, but also helpful functions for installation and commissioning. Thus a pilot laser that can be switched off simplifies fine adjustment of the sensor, and the wide variety of mounting options provides users with rapid and user-friendly installation.
The FT 92 is suitable for numerous applications in industrial automation, e.g. for small-part detection, for checking presence or for positioning tasks. The far-sighted sensor can therefore be found in many sectors: in the automotive industry and in mechanical engineering, in the wood-processing industry, in packaging machines or in the control of gates and doors. Its stable and robust design ensures smooth, trouble-free operation everywhere – as well as satisfied users!
