Scenes and objects at a glance.
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.
The sensors for industrial use are useful in applications where completeness is monitored, volumes are determined, objects are sorted and depalletised and robots are navigated.
