August 1, 2019 – Balluff’s newest precision laser sensors allow for precise positioning of small parts, as well as dark, transparent or complex-shaped objects.

Their background evaluation mode makes them an ideal choice for detecting highly reflective or shiny parts. Intelligent ambient light suppression function allows them to reliably filter out interference and ambient light.

These high-precision laser sensors’ different detection and processing modes enable reliable detection of complex-shaped objects, while their enhanced background suppression capability allows them to detect and measure dark and transparent objects, such as plastic film or products.

For teach-in, the switching point and the analog output curve can be taught using a push-button key on the sensors if not using IO-Link. When using IO-link, these features and settings can be accessed using the Balluff IO-Link Device Tool USB GUI interface window.
