SICK, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of sensors, safety systems, machine vision, encoders and automatic identification solutions for factory and logistics automation, announced the launch of the low cost OD Mini short range distance sensor for precise measurement tasks. Depending on the application, the OD Mini offers measuring ranges from 100 to 250 mm.
The OD Mini uses CMOS receiver technology, ensuring accurate, high-resolution measurements regardless of brightness and color of the surface material. The OD Mini is a stand-alone device that uses a simple teach-in LED display or an external teaching input, providing cost-saving commissioning. An integrated amplifier unit reduces the amount of cabling. This compact sensor is available in two sensor housings, including a rugged 70-gram stainless steel housing for harsh environments and a lightweight 40-gram aluminum housing for standard applications.
A wide range of interfaces, including analog and switching outputs, ensure the OD Mini can be easily integrated into industrial networks. Its precise measurement capabilities enable high machine throughput, making the OD Mini ideal for positioning, classification and quality control applications in the robotics, machine tools, electronics, automotive and packaging industries.
