Description

The sturdy metal housing

of the ucs sensors is mechanically compatible with the industrial standard of optical sensors.

The rotatable circular connector

allows for flexible selection of the mounting location and facilitates flexible wiring.

The ucs sensors

are available with 2 anti-valent pnp or npn switching outputs.

With the anti-valent switching behaviour of the two switching outputs, the first output works as an NO contact and the second works complementarily as an NC contact.

The Teach-in button

on the sensor´s top allows for a convenient setting of the desired detection distance and operating mode.

A dual LED

indicates the switching status of the two anti-valent switching outputs.

The ucs sensors have three operating modes:

  • Single switching point
  • Two-way reflective barrier
  • Window mode

The switched output is set

by positioning the object to be detected within the desired distance (1) to the sensor, pressing the button for approx. 3 seconds and then pressing it once more for approx. 1 second. Ready.

A two-way reflective barrier

can be set up with the help of a permanently mounted reflector by mounting the ucs sensor and the reflector, then pressing the button for approx. 3 seconds and then pressing it once more for approx. 10 seconds. Now, the two-way reflective barrier has been set.

Set a window

by initially positioning the object to be detected on the sensor-close window limit (1), pressing the button for approx. 3 seconds, shifting the object to the sensor-distant window limit (2) and pressing the button once more for approx. 1 second. Ready.

Up to ten sensors

can be synchronised with one another. To do this, all the sensors are electrically connected on pin 5 on the M12 circular connector.

Synchronisation using pin 5

If more than 10 sensors must be synchronised, this can be carried out with the SyncBox1 , which is available as an accessory.

LinkControl

optionally permits the extensive parameterisation of ucs sensors. The LCA-2 LinkControl adapter, which is available as an accessory, can be used to connect ucs sensors to the PC.
