Measuring distances – reliable, precise and versatile

The Dx50 is a common distance sensor platform, offering multiple performance levels. With measurement ranges of up to 10 m or 20 m on objects or even up to 50 m when measuring on reflector, the Dx50 is suitable for many different applications. Based on a switching, analog or serial interface being available the Dx50 can easily be integrated in any application environment. Also the intuitive operating concept and a visible red laser allow a fast installation of the sensors. Thanks to the innovative HDDM technology the Dx50 provides excellent reliability, immunity to ambient light and precision when being in use. Offering an extremely good price/performance ratio the Dx50 is the right solution in many cases.

At a glance
  • Highest reliability, ambient light immunity and price/performance ratio thanks to HDDM technology
  • Measuring ranges of 10 m or 20 m directly on the object or 50 m on the reflector
  • Different performance levels depending on the product and laser class
  • Various interfaces: Digital, analog or serial
  • Display with intuitive and consistent operating concept
  • Rugged zinc die cast housing
  • Wide operating temperature range from –30 °C to +65 °C
