An output type that can vary proportional to measured distance. Analog output types can be either current loop outputs or voltage outputs.
The range of distances between the two analog endpoints, within which the analog output will vary between the analog low limit and analog high limit in proportion to the measured distance.
Current Loop Output
An analog output type that drives an electrical current proportional to measured distance. Senix sensors can provide industry standard 4-20 ma. current loop outputs. Computer configurable models allow user-entered analog limits.
A distance band, starting at zero distance, within which the sensor cannot measure distance. The deadband varies with each sensor model. Targets within the deadband may still be detected but their distance cannot be determined.
One end of the analog window. Two endpoints define the analog window.
The difference between the distance that a switch turns ON and the distance that same switch turns OFF. This distance can be entered on some computer configurable models to implement simple control systems.
An enclosure rating that identifies how susceptible a product is to the entry (ingress) of external objects or liquids.
An output type that is either ON or OFF. Most switches are solid state outputs. Some are relay outputs.
A range of distances within which a switch output will be set to a defined state when a target is within the window and the opposite state when it is not. This feature is only available on some computer configurable models.
The repetitive rate at which the sensor performs distance measurements.
The range of distances between the minimum range and maximum range values.
The maximum distance at which the sensor will detect a target and report distance. Computer configurable models allow this value to be user-entered.
The minimum distance at which the sensor will begin to detect a target and report distance. Computer configurable models allow this value to be user-entered.
