Laser Sensor detects 1 mm distance changes.

January 27, 2015

Designed for difficult distance-based applications over range of 25–300 mm, Model Q4X detects distance changes as small as 1 mm on targets such as black objects on black backgrounds or reflective items. High excess gain and 64-element imager combine to minimize errors in detection, counting, and validating orientation. Supplied in IP67, IP68, and IP69K rated stainless steel housing, sensor has angled 4-digit, 7-segment LED display and provides bipolar outputs.  Read More

Time of Flight Sensors feature very small hysteresis.

February 4, 2014

Using time of flight technology, TOF Series Laser Sensors achieve up to 2 mm repeat accuracy at 3 m sensing distance. Self-contained retro reflective and background suppression sensors calculate distance based on time of travel from when beam is emitted to time it is reflected off target and back to receiver. Available with up to 2 NPN or PNP digital outputs, series includes dual output version for hi/lo or slow/stop sensing applications.
