Keyence Intros New All-Purpose Laser Sensors
Versatile laser sensor.
Itasca, IL — Keyence is introducing the all new LR-T Series multi-purpose laser sensor. The LR-T is an excellent complement to the company's existing sensor lineup with its superior detection stability, ease of operation, and versatility. Potentially limiting factors like target characteristics do not affect the LR-T's detection ability, allowing it to be utilized in a broad range of applications. It is also very durable and extremely user-friendly making it suitable for virtually any sensing situation in any environment.

The sensor's high level of detection ability is due to its Time of Flight (TOF) technology and custom integrated circuit. When paired together, the LR-T provides consistently stable detection over long or short distances, regardless of target surface type, color, or finish. Even environmental factors like ambient light, mist, or excessive dust will not affect the LR-T's detection ability. The crisp and precise OLED display screen clearly shows the operator all of the important values needed for setup, calibration, and operation. Intuitive menus make navigation through functions and settings fast and simple. A large, bright indicator light that can be seen from any angle specifies the status of the sensor to the operator.

Advanced features like an adjustable beam spot and application specific detection modes allow the LR-T to be configured and tuned to maximize performance in any situation, while its long-distance capability allows the sensor to be mounted out of the way and still deliver superior performance. In addition, the LR-T's compact and durable metal housing has an IP65/IP67 enclosure rating, making it suitable for both wash-down and other harsh environments.
