Miniaturized Photoelectric Sensors

The miniaturized MICROmote photoelectric sensors from Balluff with separate electronic processor unit provide a large amount of optical performance in a tiny amount of space thanks to the miniaturized LEDs, photodiodes and phototransistors. The sensors can be used in small installation spaces and on moving machine parts and robot grippers, where low weight is necessary.

The robust sensors integrated into the metal housing are operated with a separate amplifier, which can be positioned outside of the action area. Highly flexible electrical cables provide secure transmission of the sensor signals between the sensor head and the amplifier. In this way, the sensors are also a technical alternative to fiber optics. The amplifier features ergonomic indicators and operating elements.

The photoelectric sensor heads with dimensions of just a few millimeters not only have impressive technical characteristic values, but also numerous other unique selling points. Thanks to a sophisticated modular system, users can find the ideal solution quickly and cost-effectively. It does not matter if the application involves position detection of small parts, identification and counting of objects or detecting the filling levels of foaming liquids.

Available products include, diffuse sensors, through-beam sensors, high-vacuum sensors, fork sensors, but also precision hose sensors used, for example, in the detection of liquids and bubbles.
