Photoelectric 3D sensors are suited for many different applications, such as volume, distance and level detection. They measure the distance between the sensor and the nearest surface point by point using the time-of-flight principle. The sensors illuminate the scene with an internal or external infrared light source and calculate the distance by means of the light reflected from the surface.
These sensors for industrial applications can be used for completeness checks, volume determination or sorting tasks. Sensors for applications in mobile machines have an outstanding shock and vibration resistance.
