Datalogic - S85 - Distance sensor

  • Measuring range up to 20m
  • Analog output 4-20 mA or 0-10 V
  • 2 digital outputs
  • RS485 on advanced models
  • IP67 industrial metal housing

Product description


The S85 series is Datalogic’s innovative line of LASER distance sensors based on Time of Flight technology. It can perform high-precision and long distance measurement without the use of a prismatic reflector, as well as background and foreground suppression functions.


The Class 2 highly-focused laser and the innovative integrated software make the S85 series ideal for applications that require extremely precise measurement, offering 7mm of accuracy for distances up to 20m, with 1mm of resolution and 1mm of repeatability.


The basic model (S85-MH-5-Y03-...) measures distances up to 10m and can be simply set through user-friendly push-buttons. The basic model features an M12 5-pole standard connector with analogue and digital outputs that provide distance and the object detection.


The advanced model (S85-MH-5-Y13-...) measures distances up to 20m and is easily programmable through a keyboard and display. In addition to the analogue and digital outputs, the S85 advanced model is equipped with an RS485 serial interface.

This series is designed in a sturdy metal housing, and can be easily mounted on industrial vehicles and machinery with its dedicated mounting bracket.
