Minneapolis, Minn. – SICK, announces the launch of its new line of DT50 Distance Measurement Sensors. These cost-effective, high-performance sensors are ideal for automating production processes where budget and space were previously a constraint. The DT50 family of distance measurement sensors features a new High-Definition Distance Measurement (HDDM) platform that provides greater precision at longer sensing distances and an industry-leading operating temperature range and ambient light tolerance.

The DT50 provides high-performance distance measurement capabilities that help decrease operating and manufacturing costs by reducing scrap and increasing throughput. These lightweight, compact sensors feature an intuitive display and keypad with an easy-to-use push button for simple teach-in and programming. While the DT50 is ideal for a variety of existing distance measurement applications, this new family of sensors can also be used in new applications, such as elevator car positioning; level detection in hoppers, bins, silos, and chutes; and pre-process and closed loop feedback in metal forming applications.
