Miniature camera-based sensor from Leuze
April 2018, Sensors & Transducers


With the IPS 200i, Leuze electronic has introduced its smallest camera-based sensor for compartment fine positioning with high-bay storage devices in single-depth storage. The sensor offers some powerful advantages, among which are fast commissioning and simple alignment.

Speedy commissioning is one of the most powerful advantages of the new Leuze device. This is accomplished using a web-based configuration tool and adjustments are made directly on the small camera-based device itself. Engineered for optimum user friendliness, an alignment system with feedback LEDs provides additional support.

Due to its clever and compact design, the Leuze IPS 200i only needs a small space on high-bay storage devices. This enables quick, easy and accurate compartment positioning in either small part container storage warehousing, or in single-depth pallet high-bay warehouses.

Equipped with powerful ambient light independent IR LED lighting, a single device can be used for the entire working range of up to 600 mm. A model with integrated heating is also available for use in refrigerated warehouses where temperatures go down to -30°C.

Ensuring optimum reliability under all conditions is managed by an integral monitoring system with a quality score that identifies diminishing reading capacity of the sensor early on. This reduces downtime and improves the availability and cost effectiveness of the sensing systems.
