July 15, 2019 — Balluff’s precision laser sensors guarantee precise positioning of small parts, as well as dark, transparent or complex-shaped objects.
Their background evaluation mode makes them a choice for detecting reflective or shiny parts. And their intelligent ambient light suppression function allows them to filter out interference and ambient light.
These laser sensors’ different detection and processing modes enable detection of complex-shaped objects. While their enhanced background suppression capability allows them to detect and measure dark and transparent objects, such as plastic film or products.
For teach-in, the switching point and the analog output curve can be taught using a simple push button key on the sensors if not using IO-Link. When using IO-link, these features and settings can be accessed using the convenient Balluff IO-Link Device Tool USB GUI interface window.
Key features include:
- Various measuring modes (dark measurement, multiple measurement, transparent object detection mode)
- Enhanced detection of dark and transparent objects
- Selectable detection modes: background suppression or background evaluation
- Intelligent data pre-processing in the sensor, and IO-Link capabilities
