W10 photoelectric proximity sensor

The SICK W10 photoelectric proximity sensor is a laser triangulation sensor designed to solve a range of detection tasks in automation technology. With an intuitive touchscreen operation for ease of use, it has selectable operating modes, stainless steel housing in IP69K and IO-Link functionality.

The sensor series comprises four variants, which differ in their operating distances and mounting options. The Class 1 laser light source, in conjunction with the receiver evaluation line, is designed to deliver precise detection results with high repeat accuracy.

Three application-optimised operating modes can be activated just as easily via the display as foreground or background suppression if required. Situation-dependent teach-in options allow the sensor to be adapted to individual application scenarios. The stainless steel housing with IP69k protection protects the sensor even when used in demanding ambient conditions. Thanks to IO-Link functionality, the photoelectric sensor has the option of remote configuration and integration of the recorded sensor data into an existing automation network.

Suitable for a range of applications across numerous industrial sectors and innovation sectors, the sensor is particularly suitable in factory and logistics automation applications — eg, for the detection of objects with different or challenging surface properties such as gloss, colour or structures.

The sensor has a screen lock that protects the settings against access or unwanted changes by third parties. The short-range version has working distances between 25 and 400 mm and the long-range version ranges from 25 to 700 mm. In speed mode, the response time is 1.8 ms.
