The W16 is equipped with new technologies such as TwinEye, LineSpot, ClearSens and OptoFilter for reliable object detection. It can be quickly and conveniently adjusted via the BluePilot operating and display concept.
Since every W16 is designed as a Smart Sensor, it can be configured to fit the application via IO-Link and offers additional diagnostic functions and Smart Tasks. It is therefore a trailblazer on the path to Industry 4.0. The highly-visible PinPoint LED and the infrared LED are available as the light source.
The durable laser inscription ensures device identification in the long run. Thanks to the very rugged VISTAL housing and the predictive maintenance, the W16 offers very high reliability and prevents unplanned machine downtimes.
Using the innovative BluePilot alignment aid, the sensors in the W16 product family can be commissioned in seconds. The blue LED display provides direct feedback to assist you with optimally aligning the sensors and reflectors as well as senders and receivers.
In the case of the photoelectric proximity sensors, a push-and-turn mechanism enables the sensor to be adjusted quickly and precisely, thereby eliminating the customary time-consuming fine adjustment using rotary controls.
BluePilot also reports any change in detection quality, e.g., due to contamination or vibrations, which ensures faults are detected in a timely manner, long before a production downtime occurs.Learn more about this product.
