Miniature laser sensors with IO-Link for flexibility and control

By Chemical Engineering |

The new O300 miniature laser sensors with IO-Link (photo) reliably detect very small objects and gaps. With their IO-Link integration, O300 laser sensors are Industry 4.0-ready. IO-Link allows the quick and easy configuration of sensors for all applications using standard network components. Additional data, such as for predictive maintenance processes, are available for evaluation. IO-Link makes these sensors ideal for object detection applications in the assembly, pharmaceutical and process automation industries. Due to a laser beam, which focuses to within 0.1 mm and a high repeat accuracy of 0.1 mm, objects can be positioned with high precision and follow-up processes controlled exactly. With an extremely short response time of less than 0.1 ms, the sensor reliably detects even closely spaced objects, thus allowing fast processes and high throughput rates. Another advantage of the device is the exact alignment of the laser beam to the mounting holes by design (qTarget). qTarget ensures guaranteed detection with pinpoint accuracy over the entire series. Stainless-steel variants in a rugged washdown and hygienic design extend the typical applications of the O300 laser sensors to packaging plants in the food and pharmaceutical industries.— Baumer Electric AG, Fraunfeld, Switzerland
