    Light sources
    • Standard LED:
      The diffuse light spot is especially suited for object detection during parts feeding.

      Baumer PinPoint LED:
      A small, homogeneous light spot with sharp edges makes PinPoint ideal for exact positioning and detection of small parts.

      Infrared LED:
      Light spot is not visible to the human eye.

    Innovations
    • Baumer NextGen sensors – innovation for greater safety, convenience and optimized total operating costs

      Baumer qTeach - easy-to-operate, safe and wear-free

      With qTeach we are introducing a new, convenient and wear-free teach procedure. The O500 sebsirs cab be taught-in just by touching them with any ferromagnetic tool. A blue LED light provides clear optical feedback. To prevent user errors, qTeach locks autonomously after 5 minutes.

       

      Baumer qTarget - Time saving during installation

      The light beam of the sensor is aligned to the fixing holes by design at Baumer. This eliminates individual part tolerances, providing the entire sensors series with a light beam that is aligned with consistent accuracy.

      Baumer OneBox Design - flexibility during planning

      OneBox Design stands for a new Baumer housing design. Baumer NextGen  sensors feature the same dimensions, through holes and control elements for all sensor principles and technologies within the series.

      Aline inside

      Innovative, powerful CMOS Opto-ASIC for fast and temperature-stable sensors with high ambient light immunity.

      Maximized range – freedom during development

      As measured by their dimensions, O500 series sensors have the largest sensing distances and ranges.  Larger ranges combined with a compact design enable more flexible selection and placement of the sensor. 

    Area of Applications
    • Developed for many industries. Examples:

      • Packaging industry

      With the new O500 series we are setting new benchmarkswith regard to reliability and convenience, thus meeting thechallenges of the packaging industry in an ideal way.

      • Installation/handling and automation 

      When it comes to required features like precision, reliability and compact design, the O500 series offers optimum solutions for object detection and positioning.
