The benefits of photoelectric controls include high precision, reliability, simple integration with your systems, versatility and high speed detection. Our portfolio of technologies, sensor principles and light sources offer many different options. Here are details on just some of our solutions. Visit our website for complete product listings.
O300 Series: the largest sensing distance in a compact 1 inch design. It is available with Baumer PinPoint LED, Standard LED, or infrared. Sensor ranges are from 200mm to 6000 mm.
SmartReflect : light barriers without reflectors that can reliably detect objects independent of shape, surface, color, and transparency.
Miniaturized optical sensors: our smallest sensors, perfect for applications in tight spaces. They offer adjustable sensing distances and background suppression.
Contrast sensors: typically used for print mark detection, these sensors can be used for many other applications including detection of indentations and edges, item positioning, and distinguishing between polished and unpolished surfaces.
