Looking for a laser sensor to detect the perfume bottle’s height.

Answer : 

Kindly contact us directly at  for further technical discussion on the laser sensor. 

How to connect 30 meters of sensing distance for each K7L-AT50 sensor? Is it possible to connect using 3 x 10 meters instead? In this case, how many terminal blocks are required?

Answer : 

As for the K7L-AT50 sensor, the connecting cable is only 50m max, and the sensing band is only 10m max. Alternatively, you may consider K7L-U or 61F-GPN-V50. Kindly contact us directly at  for a quotation.

Looking for an equivalent model for this smart sensor, ZX-EM02.

Answer : 

Yes, we do have ZX-EM02 available. Alternatively, you may consider the new model of smart sensor, ZX-EM02T. The difference is the resolution as the ZX-EM02 is 0.8 μm and ZX-EM02T is 1 μm. Kindly contact us directly at  for a quotation.

Answer : 

You may consider this 61F-GP-N8.

Checking the voltage output of a displacement sensor.

Answer :

ZX2 has ±5 VDC or 1 to 5 VDC. Kindly refer to the datasheet here.

How to connect Displacement Sensor ZX1-LD300A61 to PLC?

Answer :

The sensor is not able to connect directly to the PC unless you have the suitable adapter to convert the output to USB or RS-232 etc. Otherwise, through PLC.

Looking for equivalent model with the following criteria of : Regufoam like material, 2-4cm thickness and the accuracy of 0.1mm.

Answer :

You may consider ZX1 series, based on the distance from the material & the sensor.

Looking for equivalent model for ILD 1700-100.

Answer :

You may consider ZX1-LD100A61. Kindly take note of the following difference:
1) ZX1-LD100A61
