ToF Distance Sensor for up to 12.5 m: Terabee IND-TOF-1

Terabee’s IND-TOF-1 sensor provides 12.5 m detection abilities by making use of Time-of-Flight technology. The rugged IP65 enclosure guarantees water-resistant and dust-proof capabilities in an economical and compact (99 g) design.

Programmable distance thresholds can be configured with the help of on-the-field teach-in buttons to count objects, detect movement, trigger alarms, and more. The sensor offers proximity notification using a classic NO/NC switching output (0 to 24 V) and communicates calibrated distance data through RS485 interface. Six embedded operating modes allow users to handle a range of tracking applications.

One Sensor, Six Modes

The sensor provides six operating modes with programmable distance thresholds, allowing users to meet a range of tracking and distance sensing applications.

Users can fix trigger zones and achieve quick NO/NC (0-24V) closeness notifications whenever the light beam in the trigger zone is violated. Users receive distance data through RS485 (Modbus) to know precisely at what distance the light beam has been damaged.

Users can refer to Terabee’s user manual for elaborate instructions on mode configuration and operation.

Industrial Communication Protocol

The strong M12 connection guarantees dependable transfer of distance data through RS485 interface to a control unit, like a PLC, and also offers a 0 to 24 V switching output.

Versatile and Cost-effective Installation

Users can benefit from a range of installation options with the help of an M4 screw set:

  • Back panel mounting
  • Front-panel mounting
  • Angle mounting utilizing a 90° bracket accessory

There is no need for extra components, like receivers or reflectors, for the configuration process and operation, which makes the installation both time- and cost-efficient.
