As you probably know, it’s hard to see in the dark. It’s even harder to see something dark when it’s dark, of course. But in manufacturing, sometimes that’s exactly what the situation calls for. You need a sensor that can handle the job when it’s needed.
The Sick W2S-2 photoelectric sensor has the ability to detect even the deepest shades of black and ultrablack objects in a dark environment. The W2S-2 is the first subminiature sensor which can detect low remission, reflective, and transparent objects accurately. It can also detect very thin objects for the most demanding of applications.
The W2S-2’s new PinPoint 2.0 LED can detect transparent objects and, working together with the SIRIC chipset and multi-pixel element, gives you precise setting of the switching distance, reliable detection, and differentiation between different backgrounds. Packing that power into a small package helps with ease of installation and use. Its detection range and operating distance can even beat larger models, so simplicity of design and use costs you nothing.
Four different model options are available, each optimized for different sensing capacity. The W2S-2 can respond to the parameters you set and can be read from the PLC using IO-Link for the ultimate in flexibility. No matter what your unique need is, Sick has an answer
