Sensor has a dual output

With its UZD352 sensor, Matsushita has enhanced its UZD3 long range trigonometric sensor series by using two built-in ranges, allowing it to operate as two separate sensors.

Incorporated within the standard UZD3 body – sealed to IP67 and measuring only 68 by 40 by 20mm – is a twin divided photo-receiving diode with unqiue electronic circuitry, to provide a highly flexible sensor.

The sensor is unaffected by target colour, incorporates background suppression, and features automation crosstalk prevention.
