Mini contrast sensor KTM - Sick

Top performance for universal, space-saving use in the packaging industry even under harsh conditions: The new KTM prime contrast sensor from Sick features a high grayscale resolution and is integrated into a small, tried-and-tested housing that is also available in stainless steel.
The optimized OES4 ASIC technology and a response time of 35 µs ensure reliable and accurate detection of contrast marks, even on glossy materials. The various teach-in methods (dynamic, static, and switching threshold near the marks) ensure greater flexibility during commissioning. The integrated IO-Link interface can be used to access the parameter settings. This speeds up and simplifies format changes. The KTM reliably detects marks even in conditions with weak contrast ratios and is therefore ideal for use in a wide range of applications, in the stainless-steel version, it can even be used in harsh environments during intensive cleaning.
