R200 and R201 - The New Optical Sensors for Longer Operating Distances

POSTED 05/30/2018

Mannheim: With the R200 and R201 designs, the forward-thinking product design of photoelectric sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs enables applications with longer operating distances. Just like the compact R100, R101, and R103 series, both new products consistently offer all photoelectric functional principles in a design that is now larger and suitable for specific mounting situations. Usability is intuitive and identical across all series—and the standardized IO-Link connection via the latest Smart Sensor Profiles also enables convenient and reliable integration of the sensors.
 
With the R100, R101, and R103 series, as well as the new R200 and R201 sensors, choosing the relevant sensor is easier and users also benefit from maximum flexibility in every application and mounting situation. In terms of their technical features, the new series also include robust DuraBeam laser technology and high-precision Multi Pixel Technology (MPT) for distance measurement. Standardized usability across all series and functional principles plus the IO-Link interface facilitate parameterization of the sensors during commissioning and when there is a change to the functional principle or to another series.

The R100-, R101- and R103- with the new R200- and R201 sensors

Identical Functional Principles
The new R200 and R201 series offer all photoelectric functional principles: thru-beam sensors, retroreflective sensors with a polarization filter or for clear object recognition, energetic diffuse mode sensors, sensors with background suppression and foreground suppression, measuring light barriers with two switch points, and distance sensors.

Perfect Usability
All series have an intuitive and identical look and feel during parameterization. Quick and easy sensor adjustment is guaranteed by a multiturn potentiometer and a push button, which function as a combined operating element with three LEDs for visualizing the configuration, status, and diagnostics. Across all series the user benefits from standardized usability: The look and feel when parameterizing a thru-beam sensor, a retroreflective sensor, or a diffuse mode sensor for the R100, R101 or R103 series is the same as for the R200 and R201 designs. This also applies to measuring devices with multiple switch points or distance sensors.
