For non-contact position sensing: an extensive variety of inductive, capacitive, magnetic and photoelectric sensors. Inductive proximity sensors detect metallic targets in position sensing applications and incorporate extended range technology designed to reduce failure from mechanical damage.
Applications: Position detection, timing control, position feedback, monitoring systems.
Detection of movement - from encoders, rotational speed detection through to pulse evaluation. Encoders, Speed sensors, Inclination sensors, and pulse evaluation systems.
Vision sensors for industrial applications - both in 2D and in 3D. Complete with integrated evaluation in a compact housing. efector pmd 3d is the first industrial 3D sensor that can assess objects in three dimensions at a glance. Each pixel of this chip matrix evaluates its distance to the object. The image of the object on the chip matrix and the respective distance values correspond to a 3D image. The integrated evaluation enables the detailed assessment of the object's or scene's conditions by means of volume, distance or level detection in three dimensions.
