Sick logo 2OD Value Optical Displacement Sensor

Non-contact gauging technology

SICK OD VALUESICK's line of OD optical displacement sensors are reliable tools for optical gauging applications at extremely short ranges. They can measure distances as short as 24 mm with 0.02 micron resolution and have a fast response time of 1 ms. This makes non-contact OD optical displacement sensors an ideal alternate solution to mechanical measurement devices, such as LVDT probes.

The OD Value sensor captures the most minute differences in length, width, thickness, diameter, shape, position or eccentricity directly in the machine, without contact, with high accuracy and in-process.

phoenix2Intelligent Surge Protection Device

Improve system availability and signal quality

Phoenix Contact has introduced PT-IQ: an intelligent MCR surge protection device with multi-stage remote monitoring. It provides proactive functional monitoring for signal interface surge protection devices.

MCR Surge PrtoectionThe system informs the user if a plug replacement is needed long before the components fail due to overload. This can prevent unnecessary service costs, while ensuring system availability and signal quality.

The device’s multi-stage/three-stage monitoring system enables fast and clear status identification. A yellow signal indicates that the performance limit has been reached as a result of frequent surge voltages, while a small reserve capacity ensures that protection remains effective. A red signal indicates failure. A controller monitors and sends status reports back to the control room where users can inspect the system.
  • Snap-lock mechanism for easy plugging and unplugging
  • T-bus connection provides reliable power and data transmission
  • Provides protection for up to five signal wires
  • Automatic integration of SPDs without wiring
  • One power terminal block powers 28 SPDs, reducing installation cost
