A rich lineup of remote setup and received light intensity differentiation laser sensors. This page introduces compact digital CMOS laser sensors that have a built-in amplifier and boast high durability and stability, reflective/thrubeam model laser displacement sensors that are easy to use and have the versatility to support diverse applications, and image-based laser sensors.
Distance Detection Based Sensors
The LR-X Series is a remarkably small laser sensor capable of detecting targets based on position and is unaffected by colour, surface finish, or shape. Impressive durability is achieved with its food-grade stainles steel housing (SUS316L), high IP ratings, and guarded cable. Position changes as small as 0.5 mm are possible, along with automatic and real-time intensity adjustment to ensure stable detection on any target.
Compact & Robust Design for Use Anywhere
Whether building a new machine or retrofitting an older one, the ultra-compact size of the LR-X Series makes it easy to integrate into any space. The metal housing and rugged design also ensure it will last in any environment.
Stable Detection of Any Target
Minimum Detectable Position Change: 0.5 mm
The LR-X Series detects targets based on position, not light intensity. This allows for stable detection of targets regardless of colour, surface finish, or shape. This allows the LR-X Series to be used in a wide variety of applications, including those with small position changes.
Superior Detection Capabilities
The LR-T is designed to detect at long ranges while remaining highly stable. This is achieved due to the HS2 technology used, a combination of Time of Flight detection and a custom integrated circuit. Additionally, the interference prevention and Datum Function allow users to maximize this sensors capability in any situation.
Easy to Use
The LR-T Series is simple to install and calibrate. Flexible mounting options, a visible beam spot, push button teach, and an easy to read display allow for quick setup. Even at long distances, constant feedback is provided with the LR-T's highly visible status indicator.
Best Detection Ability in its Class
The LR-Z's unique U.C.D. Function allows for stable detection of clear, metallic, or dark targets. This series can also detect purely based on distance, regardless of shape, colour, or surface finish.
Durable & Long Life
The IP68/69K rating means the LR-Z is ready for the roughest of factory environments. Wash-down, oil spray, and many corrosives are no match for the stainless steel body. Additionally, physical impact or even overtightening are not a concern because of the highly durable design.
Received Light Based Laser Sensors
Long Range and Visible Beam Spot
LV-N models feature a visible beam spot and sensor options powerful enough to blast up to 26ft. These features offer increased mounting and detection flexibility all while being as safe as a photoeye.
Simplified 1-Touch Teach
Complete set up with just one click. This feature sets the bar when it comes to quick set up.
Laser Displacement Sensors
IX Series image-based laser sensors can measure height anywhere within the area. Camera-based image recognition allows the laser to detect the height of the target point even when workpieces are not perfectly aligned on the production line. The height of where the laser hits the target will vary if the target is tilted or if the target itself is different, but the IX Series can identify the difference in height against the reference. For example, in a parts assembly line, a single IX Series unit can not only check for the presence of parts, but also perform seating checks and other height-based inspections. Thanks to its ability to detect height differences, the IX Series is also free from false detections and errors in the presence of glare from glossy surfaces of metal parts or when the detection target point has the same colour as the background, offering stable automatic inline differentiation.
Unreliable Detection with Conventional Image-Sensors, but Stable Detection with the IX-H
Low contrast targets result in difficult detection
For targets with similar colors or materials, the difference between light and dark is not always clear, which can result in unstable detection.
Target contrast does not matter
Height-based detection ensures stable results even when there is low contrast between the target and background.
Unreliable Detection with Conventional Laser-Sensors, but Stable Detection with the IX-H
Variations in position and orientation results in incorrect detection
Variations in target position and orientation can cause the spot where the laser hits the target to change, resulting in incorrect detection.
Position Adjustment tool tracks misaligned targets
The camera follows the position, orientation, and placement of the target, making it possible to identify the target location for every target.
