Distance Smart Sensor
DSS 015 | IO-Link | DC 24 V

  • Digital IO-Link interface
  • Compact dimensions
  • Versatile screw fi xing
  • High accuracy
  • Quick connection (M12 plug-in connector)
  • Large distance measuring range

The compact distance smart sensor determines the distance to objects using ultrasonic waves and the principle of time-of-fl ight measurement (ToF). It is suitable for numerous applications in the areas of distance and level monitoring. In contrast to other distance measuring methods (e.g., measuring with laser), the DSS 015 detects even transparent objects such as glass, foil and liquids and is insensitive to changing light conditions. The IO-Link interface makes it very easy to connect to higher-level control systems (e.g., PLC).
