Measuring Sensors

Optical Distance Sensors


Lights on – measurement starts

These sensors use laser or LED light to quickly and precisely measure distances on a wide range of materials, even at large ranges.

Ultrasonic Distance Sensors


With ultrasonic technology, it is possible to reliably detect even partially or completely transparent objects and to perform reliable distance measurements. In addition, measurements can be performed in dusty, hazy or humid environments.

Sensors for Positioning


With moving system parts that need to automatically work together, the positioning of parts or work pieces with millimeter accuracy is of great importance. We offer devices here with two operating principles. One is a laser distance measurement device that measures against a reflector and the other is a barcode positioning system that has a red light laser which determines the position and speed relative to a bar code tape.

Bar code positioning sensors


Position data without limit – “Infinite”, curve-going and with millimeter accuracy

The read head of the barcode positioning system is moved along a bar code tape. It calculates the absolute position data in the direction of travel with millimeter accuracy up to a distance of 10,000m. The bar code tape is extremely simple to use and can be bonded both in straight lines and in curves. Maximum flexibility, simple mounting, transparent diagnosis as well as a large selection of integrated interfaces are the strengths of this system.

Measuring forked sensors


Fork is just another word for exact

The forked shape offers measurement resolutions as great as 0.014 mm with high reproducibility without time-consuming alignment. An infrared light-band illuminates a line-scan camera (CCD line) and returns analog or digital output signals depending on the illuminated pixels and configuration.

Rotary encoders


Rotation encoders monitor and measure the speed, direction of rotation and angular position of axes.

Light Curtains


Our measuring light curtains monitor a large measurement field and output measurement information from this field. Depending on the configuration and model, the devices are suitable for a variety of measurement tasks with various resolutions and can be integrated in different fieldbus environments.

3D Sensors


These sensors determine height contours. 3D data can be easily generated for moving objects or by moving the sensor. The measurement data can either be output for external processing or preprocessed in the sensor for convenient object measurement or detection.
