HRTL Laser Light Scanner - .PDF file.

Leuze Electronic has launched the HRTL 96B laser light scanner, which has been designed for demanding applications.

Applications include sheet thickness measurement in machining centres, horizontal positioning, overshoot control, compartment occupation checks and safeguarding the operation of cranes and material-handling systems.

Extending the company’s HRT96 series, the HRLT96B uses laser, time-of-flight sensing for challenging positioning tasks and object detection.

This measurement method provides immunity from nearby light sources and works with surfaces and contours, whether close or distant, that would normally interfere with measurement or detection.

The sensor overcomes reflecting foil on pallets and dynamic backgrounds, including passing traffic such as transfer trolleys or storage and retrieval units within high-bay warehouses.

Thanks to its large detection range (from 50mm to 6m), the sensor can be used within a high-bay storage system for safely positioning pallets onto single-, double- or multi-depth storage systems.

The sensor’s black/white detection thresholds enable the sensor to determine whether a compartment is occupied.

In this example, the sensor replaces the complex, mechanical shelf overshoot controls by inspecting the position of the pallet in the shelf compartment and its protrusion during the store/fetch process, improving reliability.

The HRTL 96B laser light sensor is fast and has short response times (less than 5ms) and high switching frequencies (100Hz), according to the company.

Measuring 30 x 90 x 70mm, it can be used in confined spaces.

The sensor can be configured to any particular application, with two independent switching points being taught via a reference value at the touch of a button.

A metal housing enables the device to be used in dusty environments and at ambient temperatures, ranging from -30C to +50C.

The sensor has been tested in accordance with IP 69K and Ecolab.
