Which sensor is best for your application?

The O2I5 family includes versions with 3 different fields of view (standard, wide-angle and telephoto) and 2 different light sources (visible red and infrared). Visible red light is best for most applications, especially where printed codes are used. Infrared light is best for codes that are directly applied to the part, e.g. dot-peened, engraved, etched, etc. It is also color independent, so it can be used when the code or background colors change.

Field of view comparison up to 1000 mm. See table below for operating distances for all three lens options.
