Mounting of PosCon 3D

1. Standard installation

In standard installation, the sensor is mounted at a right angle (90°) to the reference surface or the object. The sensor is not taught into the reference surface so configuration is very easy and straightforward.
This installation method is recommended even if the reference surface cannot be taught in for some reason or another.

Align the sensor as accurately as possible at a right angle to the reference surface (background) or to the object (if there is no reference surface in the measuring field). The object must be within the measuring field, i.e. the distance from the sensor must be between 150 and 250 mm.

 

Definition of the measuring field for standard installation

The important terms "Left" and "Right" are to be regarded respectively from the viewpoint of the connector.

The sensor measures objects and edges at a distance of 150 … 250 mm (z axis) and in the measuring range (x axis) from -62.5 mm to +62.5 mm (at a distance of 250 mm). The reference surface or the object must be within the measuring field, i.e. the distance must not exceed 250 mm, but it can also be smaller.


2. Angled installation

In angled installation, the sensor can be mounted at an angle of up to +/- 30° in relation to the reference surface. This installation method is used when space conditions do not allow any other installation option or the mounting angle is not known.

The sensor may be mounted at an angle inclined maximally 30° to the left or to the right of the reference surface (background) or to the object (if there is no reference surface in the measuring field). The reference surface (background) or the object must be within the measuring field, i.e. the distance from the sensor must be between 150 and 250 mm.

At the maximum allowable inclination angle of ±30°, the sensor measures objects and edges within the measuring field defined below.
The important terms "left" and "right" are to be regarded respectively from the connector side of the sensor.
