Infrared sensors / red light sensors in miniature design

This tiny new photocell O8 is the next big thing!

  • Extremely reliable background suppression
  • Range up to 80 mm independent of the colour
  • Precise detection of very small components
  • Reliable detection of dark or shiny surfaces
  • IO-Link for remote setting

Photoelectric miniature sensor with maximum precision
The new powerful O8 sensor is an optimum choice for applications where space is at a premium such as assembly and robotics. It might be small, but the sensor achieves a range of 80 mm independent of colour and finish of the surface to be detected. Moreover the background suppression is extremely reliable and precise even for the detection of very small, flat or reflective objects. The O8 reliably copes even with constantly changing backgrounds, e.g. on robot arms.

Reliable and efficient thanks to IO-Link
Via IO-Link the ranges can be set to the nearest millimetre. A complex adjustment of the distance from the sensor to the object is not needed.
The new sensors are also available with preset ranges. With their reliability and precision they are much above the average of conventional devices.
