3D Sensor O3D – Completeness monitoring

Completeness monitoring with the O3D 3D Sensor

The 3D sensor looks at the handling unit from above and compares it with the models taught in by the user. It signals any deviation via a switching output. Continuous exchange with users and extensive handling tests have led to extraordinarily simple operation and integrability of the sensor.

  • Reliable detection of underfill or overfill
  • Automatic position tracking
  • Different handling units can be taught
  • Colour-independent and extraneous-light resistant due to time-of-flight technology (PMD).
  • Switching outputs and Ethernet process data interface

Incomplete shipments never again

If a pallet with only one incomplete handling unit reaches the customer, he often returns all goods. This does not only lead to dissatisfaction but also to additional costs. Completeness monitoring provides the remedy. Often individual sensors are installed above each individual handling unit position. This is, however, not very flexible if the handling unit type or size changes. Then changes become necessary. If colour or texture of the handling units change, conventional sensors reach their limits.

All these problems do not exist with completeness monitoring on the basis of 3D sensors: The 3D sensor looks at the handling unit from above and compares it with the models taught in by the user. It signals any deviation via a switching output. Continuous exchange with users and extensive handling tests have led to extraordinarily simple operation and integrability of the sensor.

The benefit of completeness monitoring

  • Teach different handling unit types and select without mechanical retrofitting.
  • Check underfill or overfill and, if required, both.
  • Automatic position adjustment guarantees stable function even with variable object position.
  • Colour-independent and extraneous-light resistant due to time-of-flight technology (ToF).

Simple and convenient set-up

  • Integration in automation systems via digital I/Os or Ethernet interface.
  • Fast configuration, usually less than three minutes.
  • A wiring wizard helps with the first set-up.
