Photoelectric sensors for countless applications

They don't miss a thing – object detection, color recognition, component counting, filling level monitoring.

Thanks to their small, precise light spots, their high speed and their versatility, they have been solving even the most difficult application tasks for decades. We offer photoelectric solutions for all detection applications in industrial automation: with light barriers, scanners, differential sensors, optical fibers, color and contrast sensors by Baumer, you are always well equipped.

    In the field of photoelectric sensors, Baumer plays a leading technical role in the solution of demanding detection tasks. In the past few years, we have repeatedly managed to set new standards, for example with the smallest diffuse sensor with background suppression, the smallest programmable photoelectric sensors or the first light barrier without a separate reflector/receiver. We are also world market leaders in the field of copy counters for the printing and packaging industry.
