To indicate the status of a job pick, the K50 Series sensor has a large 50 mm translucent dome that houses highly visible LEDs of one or two colors. Priced as low as $110, K50 sensors cost far less than alternative bin-picking systems, says the vendor. Several models are available, including no-touch sensors and push-button models. Retroreflective and fixed-field activate when they sense the presence of a hand and visually alert the assembler of the next pick location or a mispick. Mechanical push-buttons models have a pressure-activated button.
