The KTL180 reliably detects contrast differences even at high machine speeds. Thanks to its 31.2 kHz switching frequency, a high grayscale resolution and manual switching threshold adjustment, the KTL180 makes for safe object detection. The response time of 16 µs ensures stable and accurate detection of contrast differences, for example with print marks, even for high-gloss materials. The sensor can be quickly adjusted to the respective application with the 7-segment display and easy menu guidance. Various teach-in processes as well as an integrated job save increase the flexibility during commissioning in a large range of applications - with very high process stability.
