Precision detection with laser sensors
January 2017, Sensors & Transducers


The need to detect small parts and accurately position these has increased in demand as many products become ever smaller. Countapulse Controls offers a range of laser sensors that are capable of reliably identifying small objects, accurately measuring dimensions and positioning these where required. Use of Leuze laser sensors that incorporate directional light beams facilitates optimum reliability for the end-user.

Alignment is simplified using a small light spot and these sensors are engineered to ensure an exact switching point. In addition, Leuze laser sensors can facilitate the detection of narrow openings, adding to the flexibility of these devices.

Leuze offers a wide range of laser Class 1 sensors and the advantage of these devices is that the laser radiation emitted by these sensors does not pose a hazard to the human eye. These sensors can be used exactly like classic sensors with LEDs, however there is no need to take additional measures to protect workers in the area from exposure to the laser as would have been necessary with conventional laser sensors.
