Wenglor releases high-performance sensors

measurement of extremely small components in the micron range often pushes
optical sensors beyond their limits.

Now with the
introduction of its new PNBC range, Wenglor is setting new standards in
accuracy with their maximum resolution of 0.06μm with only 0.05% linearity
error. This impressive precision is supported by excellent reproducibility and
thermal stability – even at output rates of up to 30kHz.

Wenglor’s new
range of PNBC sensors work with a high resolution CMOS line array and determine
distance to the object by means of angular measurement.

Top quality
optics make measured values possible which can be read out with 16-bit
resolution and can thus go all the way down to 0.06μm.

Thanks to
proven algorithms, stable measured values are obtained even for difficult to
measure surfaces, for example sheet metal with speckle effect, and can be
reliably evaluated.

With a maximum
range of 1000mm, PNBC products are amongst the most accurate sensors available
on the market and with measuring frequencies of up to 30,000Hz, PNBC sensors
are well above average relative to other, comparable distance sensors.

temperature drift makes use of the sensor possible immediately after switching
it on without a long warm-up phase, and the sensor can get down to work without

The measured
value is read out simultaneously via the analog output and the Industry 4.0
compatible Ethernet TCP/IP interface. This provides users with the opportunity
of forwarding data to higher-level system participants directly via network

The new sensors
are equipped with up to four switching outputs, which can also be used as
incremental encoder inputs or for switching emitted light on and off.
