June 3, 2019 — Balluff’s photoelectric sensors deliver sensing capabilities for use in applications, like robot part-detection, where size constraints exist, and multiple sensors are required.
In robot applications, sensors must be lightweight, small, and self-contained, and the Balluff IO-Link miniature sensors are designed to fulfill these requirements. They can be remotely configured.
Available in a stainless steel M8 tubular style, 8x8 metal block style, and a stainless steel IP69K flat pack style, each style offers a red LED light spot for sensor alignment. Additionally, the various sensor models have the option of side or front-mounted optics.
For these sensors IO-Link parameterization permits multiple teach methods including single point, two point, window and dynamic modes. Users can set the range and the hysteresis of the sensor, eliminating the need to adjust the sensor-to-object distance.
