Laser Distance Sensor with IO-Link and Ambient Light Suppression
New features create marked improvements over the previous models. Selectable modes allow you to choose between IO-Link, voltage (0…10 V or 1…10 V), or analog (4…20 mA) outputs. This combines the output modes of three previous BOD 24K models into one. Other improvements include an upgrade to IO-Link v1.1, and an OLED display instead of an LCD. And the new model’s class 1 laser doesn’t require the protective measures needed with the previous model’s class 2 laser.
The sensor provides ambient light suppression as well as filtering to eliminate possible interference. The sensor also includes a precision mode for high accuracy at reduced processing speed. Setting the various modes and functions is easy with the display and two integrated keys. Alternately, you can adjust the settings using IO-Link.
The sensor is available in two variations. The BOD002M has a 50 to 100 mm working distance and a resolution down to 10 μm, while the BOD002N has a 50 to 650 mm working distance and a resolution down to 100 μm. Three integrated mounting holes and a rotatable connector make installation and connection easy. A simple, standardized 4-pin M12 plug is used to connect the sensor.
