Miniature Laser Sensors Pack IO-Link

Baumer’s O300 miniature laser sensors with IO-Link reliably detect very small objects and gaps. The sensors are Industry 4.0-ready via the IO-Link, which allows the quick and easy configuration of sensors for all applications using standard network components.


Due to a laser beam which focuses to within 0.1 mm and a repeat accuracy of 0.1 mm, objects can be positioned with high precision and follow-up processes controlled exactly. With a response time of less than 0.1 ms, the sensor reliably detects even closely spaced objects, thus allowing fast processes and high throughput rates. A big advantage is the exact alignment of the laser beam to the mounting holes by design via qTarget, an app that ensures guaranteed detection with pinpoint accuracy over the entire series.
