Versatile for use in a large variety of applications and industries

Transparent workpieces with multiple reflections

Transparent or translucent targets that generate multiple reflections can be stably detected using the U.C.D. Funrtion.

Grease application confirmation

Translucent liquids, such as grease or adhesives, can be easily detected using U.C.D. Funrtion. Simply use the external calibration input to set the part background, and the sensor will quickly output once the liquid is applied.

Packaging materials

Packaging materials can be easily detected using U.C.D. Funrtion, regardless of colour, transparency, or package content.

Use as a general-purpose laser sensor

Sensors containing the U.C.D. Funrtion can still utilise the standard DATUM mode for all-purpose detection.

Application Improvement

Confirming workpiece ejection in oil-contaminated environments

[ Before ]

Before

A thrubeam photoelectric sensor was used. Production was temporarily stopped due to a large amount of oil buildup.

[ After ]

After

Downtime can be reduced by installing a sensor away from oil splash in order to eliminate malfunctions.

Confirming product quantity

[ Before ]

Before

Previously, confirming product quantity required manual adjustment of the sensors at product changeover to account for different product heights.

[ After ]

After

By installing the LR-Z sensor above the target and using the external calibration input, product changeover time is reduced and precise operation is ensured.
