SICK: Array sensors AS30 – More flexibility and efficient communication

September 3, 2019

Your Benefits

  • Higher reliability and more stable processes thanks to teach-in of contrast edges
  • TFT display for flexible configuration options and easy commissioning
  • Various operating modes provide the right defaults for every application
  • High repeatability of up to 30 µm
  • No fine positioning of the sensor required thanks to the large field of view of up to 50 mm
  • IO-Link and the SOPAS ET software ensure easy configuration
  • Efficient communication and predictive maintenance through smart sensor functionality

More flexibility and efficient communication

The AS30 array sensor operates on the proximity scanning principle. It detects even the slightest differences in grayscale values within the field-of-view. Positioning of, for example, a paper web based on the web edge or a contrast line is only one of many possible applications. Widths, diameters, and gaps can also be detected. In reflector mode, the AS30 can even detect transparent materials.

At a glance

  • Teach-in of selected edges possible
  • Full color TFT display
  • Various operating modes for different applications
  • Core and Prime variant for different fields of application
  • Large measuring range of up to 50 mm
  • Sensing distance of 25 mm or 100 mm
  • Repeatability of up to 30 µm
