DS3 Series

Key Features

  • Operating distance reaching 1.5 m and up to 600 mm controlled height
  • Digital PNP and 0 - 10 V analogue outputs
  • Simple configuration obtained using the internal dip-switches
  • Teach-in setting with Remote and self-calibration function


The AREAscanTM light grids of the DS3 series are optoelectronic multi-beam devices that can be used to detect, measure and control the position of objects, also transparent and small. Models with 150, 300, 450 or 600 mm detection field height are available, as well as presenting 0.2 - 0.6 m or 0.6 - 1.5 m operating distances. Internal dip-switches for configuration are available on all models, together with the Teach-in setting button with Remote and self-calibration function, LED indicators for the signaling of the device operating and auto-diagnostic status.

The synchronization via cable of the emitter and receiver units guarantees high optic and electromagnetic interference immunity. The integrated electronics eliminates the need for an external control unit. The compact dimensions (35 x 40 mm), easy installation and excellent performances make the AREAscanTM light grids particularly suitable to the many different applications of automatic packaging and industrial automation in general.
