Optical Laser Distance Sensor detects targets up to 4 m away.

Press Release Summary:




Model OADM 25 detects target objects, regardless of surface properties or color, at distances from 0.2-4 m away, with response times of less than 10 msec, resolutions of 1.2 mm, and repeat accuracy of ±5 mm. Unit measures 25 x 66 x 51 mm and has aluminum housing, washable glass front optics, and IP67 certification. Measuring range can be adjusted using teach-in button or separate wire, and integrated alarm will sound if target is outside taught-in range.



Original Press Release:



Color Insensitive Laser Distance Sensor Detects Targets Up to 4 Meters Away



Compact Sensor Fits Easily Into Automated Industrial Equipment for OE or Retrofit Applications

Southington, Conn. - Baumer has introduced the OADM 250, an optical laser distance sensor specifically designed to accurately detect target objects, regardless of surface properties or color, at distances from 0.2 meters to 4 meters away. Based on time of flight technology, the compact OADM 250 offers response times of less than 10 ms, resolutions of 1.2 mm, and repeat accuracy of ±5 mm, which delivers precise data even on moving targets.

The Baumer OADM 250 is designed to supplement traditional laser distance sensors with measuring ranges of less than 1 meter. Sized at just 25 x 66 x 51 mm, the sensor fits easily into almost any application. A robust aluminum housing, washable glass front optics, and IP67 certification provide durability and reliability in harsh end use environments.

The measuring range of the OADM 250 is easily adjusted using a teach-in button or separate wire. To ensure sensor reliability, an integrated alarm will sound if the target is outside the taught-in range.

The OADM 250 sensor can be used in a variety of automated long-range part placement/detection, counting, and control monitoring applications such as conveying, palletizing, handling/logistics, packaging, assembly, and lumber processing. These sensors are also used in heavy-duty vehicles, solar panels, wind turbines, print/graphics machinery and metalworking equipment.
