der wintec. Formative for the Industry.

Long-range laser distance sensors with wintec (wenglor interference-free technology) have played a formative role in countless industries worldwide for over ten years. Thanks to integrated DS technology, the new generation of these sensors once again sets standards in terms of precision, performance, interference immunity, communication capability and robustness. The sensors detect objects regardless of color, gloss, surface texture and inclination angle.

The wintec With DS Technology
(Dynamic Sensitivity).

Compared with traditional transit time technologies, the latest wintec generation uses “Dynamic Sensitivity” (DS) technology. The laser distance sensor emits very short light pulses in the nanosecond range, with signals that are statistically evaluated and thus produce the distance value to the object.
  • Unrivaled reception sensitivity
  • Large working range of up to 10,000 mm
  • Reproducibility as low as 3 mm
  • Highly insensitive to ambient light of up to 100,000 lux
  • Insensitive to Interference

The wintec in Stainless Steel 316L Housing.

For extreme industrial environments, the wintec is available in a high-quality stainless steel housing for the first time, which gives the sensor even greater mechanical robustness at temperatures of −40 to +50 °C, as well as high chemical material resistance.
  • IP69K degree of protection via laser-welded housing
  • Resistant to cleaning agents with ECOLAB approval
  • Corrosion-resistant housing made of stainless steel 316L (1.4404)
  • Resistant to oils and lubricants

Performance and Precision.

Large Working Range

The wintec with DS technology impresses with a large working range of up to 10 m – regardless of whether the objects are light or dark, matt or shiny. The two independent switching outputs can be used, for example, to control signals for deceleration and stopping.

Detection of Transparent Objects

The wintec with DS technology delivers reliable results even with very weak signals and thus impresses with the detection of transparent objects such as items of clothing packed in film.

Superior Detection and Maximum Precision

Thanks to DS technology, the wintec also scores highly when it comes to detecting black and shiny surfaces, which are reliably detected even at extreme inclines. Even the smallest parts can be reliably detected from long distances with the fine laser beam and distances can be accurately measured.

Safety and Reliability.

Extremely High Resistance to Ambient Light

Thanks to DS technology, the wintec is extremely robust against disturbing ambient light up to 100,000 lux – reliable operation is guaranteed even in strong sunlight.

Hiding Interferences

The wintec also works reliably in dirty environments. Disturbing ambient conditions such as dust and swarf can be hidden. Interference factors in the background, such as reflective high-visibility vests, also do not affect the sensor.

No Reciprocal Influence

The wintec with DS technology allows up to six sensors to be installed directly next to each other and even opposite each other without influencing each other.

Smart Communication and Condition Monitoring.

IO-Link 1.1 With COM3

Thanks to the integration of the latest IO-Link standards, the wintec can exchange process data with the control system at an extremely high transmission speed of 230.4 kBit/s.

Writing Process Data

The wintec can control important sensor functions via writable process data. The data are transmitted cyclically and time-consuming control programming is no longer necessary. This means that the laser light can be switched off, for example. Irritations in the interaction between man and machine are prevented and the laser light (laser class 1) is only activated when it is needed.

Intuitive Operating Software and Selectable Measuring Unit

Whether metric or the Anglo-American measuring system – the wintec can output the distance values in millimeters or inches. These and other settings are possible via IO-Link and can be made conveniently via the wTeach graphic operating software.
der wintec - Kommunikation - Statusmeldungen

Extensive Status Messages

The wintec constantly monitors itself and outputs this information via numerous status messages. For example, temperature or ambient light warnings provide information on the current ambient conditions. The sensor also detects if its lens is dirty and provides information for preventive maintenance.

Built-in Acceleration Sensor

The acceleration sensor built into the wintec detects impacts and shock loads. This can be used to detect, for example, whether a driverless transport system (DTS) has been subjected to a shock load due to a crash.

Durability and Robustness.

der wintec - Beständigkeit


The wintec is resistant to cleaning agents thanks to its robust stainless steel 316L housing (1.4404) with ECOLAB approval and high IP69K degree of protection, making it ideal for the wash-down area in the food industry.
der wintec - Beständigkeit


Thanks to its robust stainless steel housing, the wintec is resistant to oils and coolants, as well as impacts, and is therefore particularly durable. This makes it ideal for use in harsh industrial environments. 
der wintec - Beständigkeit


The wintec can efficiently withstand frequent and intensive cleaning with aggressive cleaning and disinfecting agents – even with high-pressure cleaning up to 100 bar and a water temperature of 80 °C. 
der wintec - Beständigkeit


For applications in harsh environments with high levels of sparks – such as welding applications – the interchangeable PMMA lens with special coating provides increased protection of the sensor in a robust stainless steel housing. Lenses worn by welding spatter can be easily replaced. This means that no additional protective housing is required and the sensor does not need to be replaced.
