Laser sensors offer precise detection of small objects and gaps
The O300 miniature laser sensors, with IO-Link, from Baumer, are said to offer a solution for the detection of very small objects and gaps.
A laser beam of the sensor is able to focus to within 0.1mm and the high repeat accuracy of 0.1mm. Objects can be precisely positioned and follow-up processes controlled exactly.
A short response time allows the sensor to reliably detect even closely spaced objects, allowing fast processes and high throughput rates.
The wear free teach-in method is said to make commissioning easy and the traditional weak point of the pushbutton or potentiometer is ruled out with the tamper-resistant teach-in method, qTeach.
