SICK W10 photoelectric proximity sensor

Friday, 17 May, 2024 | Supplied by: SICK Pty Ltd


The W10 photoelectric proximity sensor from SICK comprises four variants, which differ in their operating distances and mounting options.

The W10 does away with slide switches, potentiometers and rotary knobs by providing a touchscreen display. A screen lock protects the settings against access or unwanted changes. As an alternative to operation on the device, the W10 can also be set easily via IO-Link and can also communicate via this interface. The W10 has two digital outputs for the output of switching signals.

The W10 combines a class 1 laser light source with a fast receiver evaluation line, achieving detection results with high repeat accuracy both in the short-range version with working distances between 25 and 400 mm and in the long-range version with ranges from 25 to 700 mm. In speed mode, the response time is 1.8 ms.

The photoelectric proximity sensor offers individual teach-in options for specific adaptations. In addition to the usual 1-point teach, which detects objects at a defined distance, a 2-point teach enables objects of different heights to be detected. A manual mode extends the teach options for more flexibility. Both the short- and long-range versions of the W10 are available in two housing variants: one for standard mounting with a 1″ hole and one for hybrid mounting via the M18 thread on the front or the 1″ hole on the side.
