Accurate and non-contact distance measurement for automation technology

Distance sensors

Highlights

  • Fast and accurate measurement, precise positioning and detection of a wide range of materials
  • IO-Link sensors can be operated in IO-Link mode or standard I/O mode
  • Our distance sensors cover a wide range of applications:
    • Triangulation sensors for near-field applications
    • Time-of-flight sensors for long working distances

Distance sensors for all operating ranges

Triangulation for close range

The measurement principle of optical triangulation is suitable for the precise determination of distances at close range. With the help of special receiver optics and a position-sensitive detector (e.g. a photodiode line), the sensor can determine the object distance regardless of its reflectivity (see illustration below). The color and surface properties (e.g. highly reflective) thus have practically no effect on measurement accuracy.

Time-of-flight for long distances

SensoPart uses time-of-flight technology to measure longer distances (up to 250 m). The sensor emits pulsed laser light that is reflected by the target object. The distance to the object is determined by the time taken between emission and reception of the light. The use of pulsed light provides reliable background suppression and very high immunity to ambient light.

Triangulation sensors for near-field applications (up to 1000 mm)

Time-of-flight sensors for long working distances (up to 70 m)

The world's smallest

The FT 10-RLA is scarcely larger than the tip of your finger – and therefore ideal for cramped conditions.

For all measurement tasks

The laser and LED variants FT 25-R(L)A in miniature format are the perfect solution for simple applications.

Proven and reliable

The FT 50-RLA series in a slimline housing has already been a long-standing and reliable choice for many customers.

High-performance precision

The FT 55-RLAM reliably detects surfaces from black to shiny even at large distances up to 1000 mm.

For long distances

The F 55-RLAP time-of-flight sensors have a range of up to 70 m (on reflector) and 5 m (on object).
