Measuring sensors are used to measure the dimensions of an object by converting changes in amount of light into electrical signals when the object interrupts a wide laser beam.
1. A physical quantity of an object can be measured.
A Displacement Sensor measures and detects changes (displacement) in a physical quantity.
The Sensor can measure the height, width, and thickness of an object by determining the amount of displacement of that object.
A Measurement Sensor measures the position and dimensions of an object.
2. Physical quantity output is also possible in addition to ON/OFF signal output.
Analog output of physical quantities (current output or voltage output) can also be performed (excluding some models).
Some models also support digital (serial) communications.
