In assembly and handling applications, the profiler does not only verify the presence of an object, but it checks whether the correct component has been used and properly installed.
A push of a button is all that is required to compare the contour of an object with the taught target contour stored in the profiler. The photoelectronic line scanner reliably detects tiny differences between nearly identical components. Since the distance is not relevant, the PMD profiler does not require complicated positioning as is the case with 1D sensors.
Thanks to the insensitivity to extraneous light, no screening or external illumination is required as is the case with camera systems performing to this high level of accuracy.
With its user-friendly colour display and intuitive setting with only 3 pushbuttons, the sensor is ready for use within a few minutes without requiring any software. It is possible to either transmit information on the reject rate or the detected object profiles via IO-Link.
