Measuring sensors

Intelligent monitoring and control through measuring sensors

Measuring sensors can actively check distances, position system parts and monitor other parameters in order to intelligently and independently initiate actions and, e.g., intervene in processes for control purposes. Here, you will find a large selection of technologies and designs for as efficient and fault-free system operation as possible.

Optical distance sensors

Lights on – measurement starts

These sensors use laser or LED light to quickly and precisely measure distances on a wide range of materials, even at large ranges.

When light isn't enough

With ultrasonic technology, it is possible to reliably detect even partially or completely transparent objects and to perform reliable distance measurements. In addition, measurements can be performed in dusty, hazy or humid environments.

Sensors for positioning

At the right position with millimeter accuracy

With moving system parts that need to automatically work together, the positioning of parts or work pieces with millimeter accuracy is of great importance. We offer devices here with two operating principles. One is a laser distance measurement device that measures against a reflector and the other is a bar code positioning system that has a red light laser which determines the position and speed relative to a bar code tape.

3D sensors

Would you like another dimension with that?

These sensors determine height contours. 3D data can be easily generated for moving objects or by moving the sensor. The measurement data can either be output for external processing or preprocessed in the sensor for convenient object measurement or detection.

Light curtains

Many beams see more than one

Our measuring light curtains monitor a large measurement field and output measurement information from this field. Depending on the configuration and model, the devices are suitable for a variety of measurement tasks with various resolutions and can be integrated in different fieldbus environments.

Bar code positioning systems

Product selector

Position data without limit – "Infinite", curve-going and with millimeter accuracy

The read head of the bar code positioning system is moved along a bar code tape. It calculates the absolute position data in the direction of travel with millimeter accuracy up to a distance of 10,000m. The bar code tape is extremely simple to use and can be bonded both in straight lines and in curves. Maximum flexibility, simple mounting, transparent diagnosis as well as a large selection of integrated interfaces are the strengths of this system.

Measuring forked sensors

Product selector

Fork is just another word for exact

The forked shape offers measurement resolutions as great as 0.014 mm with high reproducibility without time-consuming alignment. An infrared light-band illuminates a line-scan camera (CCD line) and returns analog or digital output signals depending on the illuminated pixels and configuration.
