These easy-to-use sensors can be used in a large variety of diverse applications such as highly accurate positioning and product type difference checking. The lineup also includes a brand-new image-based laser sensor that automatically corrects target misalignment to simultaneously detect multiple points with high accuracy.
Reflective Laser 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.
Tough, Reliable, Repeatable Laser Measurement Simplified. KEYENCE brings you an economical analogue laser sensor.
LVDT / Contact Sensors
IP67G Oil-Resistant Design for Measurement in Machine Processing and Other Oily Environments
The sensor head - including the connector and cable section - are IP67G and NEMA Type 13 compliant. This means that stable measurement is achieved even in harsh environments containing splashing water or oil. In order to improve robustness - a common problem with contact sensors - careful attention was paid to the structure of the sensor body. The design incorporates a high-strength linear ball bearing and a seamless body for additional durability. In addition, the reduced weight of the spindle means minimal wear from friction and significantly improved durability. These design improvements reduce maintenance and equipment downtime.

Tough and rugged general purpose digital contact sensor with push button calibration.
Thrubeam Laser Sensors
Easy to Use
The position monitor makes it easier to align the optical axis. Easily perform optical axis alignment by adjusting the sensor head so that all of the position monitor lights turn red.
The enclosure satisfies the IP67 rating based on the IEC standards and remains watertight even after being held at a depth of one meter for 30 minutes. The enclosure is resistant to adverse environments and offers long-term durability.
The intelligent I-Series consists of a high-accuracy sensor lineup that realises low-cost high performance with only the most advanced functions for on-site operations.
Ultrasonic / Level Sensors
Introducing the FW Series, a tough, super multi-reflective sensor unaffected by a target's material, color, or luster.
Can be used for all types of targets
The FW Series easily detects metal, glass, liquid level or other targets that have been difficult to detect with reflective-type photoelectric sensors. Also, the detections are not influenced by the color, pattern, or luster of the target surface.
High stability and reliability
A new algorithm A.W.S. (Active Wave Stabilizer)* stabilizes detection while avoiding the influence of target vibration or external disturbances.
* The A.W.S. (Active Wave Stabilizer) function executes optimal processing according to the detecting condition and cancels fluctuations even when the receiving condition of the ultrasonic wave changes due to target vibration.
