Montage, positioning and coverage

Due to its small size, the P2L sensor comfortably fits over most materials containers and makes the use of kanban shelves or other efficient material provision systems possible. In order to allow easy assembly, the sensor is designed with two holes for M4 screw fitting.

Montage

P2L sensor is easy to install and can be quickly integrated in existing assembly workplaces. Customer tailored integration solutions are available on request.

Assembly is done by screwing two screws or brackets on a fitting retaining plate (not included in scope of delivery). The gripping range must be within the maximum range of 150 mm, optimally at 100 mm. For a better integration of P2L-sensors in your deployment architecture, CAD data with measurements are available on our download page, in order for you to find their optimal position. In order to fix a P2L sensor, two M4 screws with a minimal length of 10 Millimeter are needed. For the ESD variants, two additional external teeth lock washers (DIN 6797) are required.

Alignment

A downward-facing alignment is recommended. The sensor can also be aligned upward or side-facing, but it might be become susceptible to failures because of dirt (case-by-case assessment).

Recommended Installation PositionStandard installation Position

  • Sensor field facing downwards
  • Less susceptible for contamination
  • No influence by ambient light
 
Possible Installation Position (case-by-case assessment)Standard installation position – Sensor field facing upwards

Possible, but more susceptible for contamination:

  • by dirt deposit on the sensor
  • by ambient light

 

Possible Installation Position (case-by-case assessment)Standard installation – Sensor field  facing sideways

Possible, but more susceptible for contamination:

  • by dirt deposit on the sensor
  • by ambient light

                  

Coverage

Sensor coverage reaches between 20 and 150 mm. Optimal results are reached at a distance of 100 mm.
