Sensopart has his Subminiature sensor family F 10 extended. In addition to laser sensors, LED sensors are also available from now on, including a light sensor with adjustable background suppression and a blue light variant for highly light-absorbing target material. In particular, the FT 10-RH LED light scanner with its adjustable background suppression can be flexibly adapted to different objects and applications without the need for retrofitting.
With a maximum scanning distance of 70 mm, it is unique in the market in this size. In addition, there are also fixed-focus light sensors - also with background suppression - with scanning ranges of 15, 30 or 50 mm. The background suppression in the F 10 sensors is based on a distance measurement using the line ASIC. This functional principle enables a high-precision spatial resolution, so that objects, regardless of color and surface quality, even against bright backgrounds or reflective machine parts, still differ reliably. With dimensions of only 21,1 x 14,6 x 8 mm and a weight of 3 g, the small light sensors can be mounted directly in the robot gripper and are therefore very well suited for pick-and-place applications.
