Precise measurement and reliable detection of any objects at
longer distances, with ambient light or against highly reflective
backgrounds – these are typical requirements in factory
automation. Conventional proximity sensors rapidly come up
against their limits under these conditions, particularly when
distances of well over a meter are involved.
Light time-of-flight measurement is the solution for such demanding
automation tasks. SensoPart was one of the pioneers
of this sensor principle, now improved in sensors of the FT55
series. In a very compact housing (50 x 50 x 23 mm³) these
light time-of-flight sensors offer excellent performance data
that has previously only been available in considerably larger
sizes: long ranges and scanning distances of up to 5 m on light
objects or 3 m on very dark objects, measurement accuracy
in the millimetre range, and cycle frequencies of up to 500 Hz
for rapid processes.
