Time of flight technology as standard sensor

August 2017 Sensors & Transducers

Ifm electronic’s O5D with time of flight technology (photonic mixer device) combines the following advantages: long range, reliable background suppression, visible laser light and high excess gain. In the same price range as standard sensors, it is a clever alternative.

The switch point is set easily to the nearest centimetre via pushbuttons and display, or alternatively via IO-Link, allowing read-out of the actual value.

Polished, matt, dark or light objects of any colour are measureable as the O5D features reliable background suppression. The unit allows any angle of incidence and thus flexibility of mounting, which simplifies the installation and saves costs.

Some applications for these sensors include detection on a conveyor belt in the confectionery industry, identification and detection of interchangeable tools and the loading condition of conveyor belts.
