SICK has released the OD max displacement sensor, suitable for quality assurance or surface inspections. The compact optical head fits into locations with limited mounting space. In addition to processing measured values, the evaluation unit offers connections for two sensors, as well as a variety of integrated, basic arithmetical functions.
The OD max operates with highly-accurate CMOS technology and is available in three variants for operating distances of 30mm, 85mm and 350mm. Each device offers two analogue outputs in addition to five switching outputs adjustable via teach-in. Two status indicators per sensor provide information on the current operating state.
It provides quality inspections which reliably detect the smallest of parts or a fine application of material. Applications include checking tolerances or quality for quality assurance in the automotive industry and their supplier industries.
