March 30, 2020 — The additions to Balluff’s line of distance sensors feature selectable modes that allow users to choose between IO-Link, voltage (0…10 V or 1…10 V), or analog (4…20 mA) outputs.
The two variations — the BOD002M with a 50 to 100 mm working distance and a resolution down to 10 μm, and the BOD002N with a 50 to 650 mm working distance and a resolution down to 100 μm — combine the output modes of three previous models into one. Other improvements include an upgrade to IO-Link v1.1, an OLED display instead of an LCD, and a class 1 laser.
The sensor provides ambient light suppression as well as filtering to eliminate possible interference, which is useful when working with challenging targets such as those with reflective or black material. The sensor also includes a precision mode for high accuracy at reduced processing speed.
