Presence Detection Mode
The IS16 software includes Presence Detection mode PNP/NPN, which enables outputs to be set based on the presence of objects within configured detection zones (two zones; one per output). Thanks to the Teach Configuration feature, it is possible to define the perimeter of the sensor’s surroundings as a detection zone. In Quick mode, a near limit and far limit can be easily configured to quickly define zones. Alternatively, zones can also be configured manually in Advanced mode, with the option to set near and far limits for each segment or to deactivate unwanted segments.
Raw Measurements Mode
The IS16 provides the capability to acquire and log all measurements from all segments in real time through the RS-485 link. Each measurement generates a calculation for the distance of the detected object, the index of the segment it was detected in and the intensity of the measurement (an indication of how much light was reflected off the object and captured by the sensor).
