IDEC Corporation: Miniature laser and contrast sensor
IDEC’s S8 sensors come in a miniature housing (14 x 42 x 25mm) and deliver high-accuracy detection.
Available with laser emission for background suppression and polarized retro-reflective sensing modes, the laser versions offer an extremely focused spot less than 1mm and switching frequencies reaching 10kHz. S8 also has quality read repeatability, detecting the object (even if transparent) in the same position and guaranteeing precision. This improves reliability and plant productivity creating a reduction in maintenance and eliminating machine stops. S8 registration mark sensors with RGB emission and coaxial optics provide quality detection and depth-of-field.
