March 16, 2018 - Baumer announced the O300 miniature laser sensors with IO-Link for the detection of small objects and gaps. With their IO-Link integration, O300 laser sensors are Industry 4.0-ready. IO-Link allows the configuration of sensors for all applications using standard network components. In addition, additional data, e.g. for predictive maintenance processes, are available for evaluation. IO-Link makes these sensors suitable for object detection applications in the Assembly, Pharmaceutical, and Process Automation industries
Due to a laser beam which focuses to within 0.1 mm and an accuracy of 0.1 mm, objects can be positioned with precision and follow-up processes controlled exactly. With a response time of less than 0.1 ms, the sensor detects even closely spaced objects.. A feature is the exact alignment of the laser beam to the mounting holes by design (qTarget). qTarget is designed to ensure detection with pinpoint accuracy over the entire series.
The no-wear teach-in method (qTeach) allows commissioning of the sensor. It also uses a tamper-resistant qTeach teach-in method..
The O300 laser product portfolio offers tailor-made solutions for precise detection tasks. Among the five sensor principles to choose from, stainless steel variants in a rugged washdown and hygienic design extend the typical applications of the O300 laser sensors to packaging plants in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
