What is the name of your product?
Measuring photoelectric sensor O8 in compact design
What problem does your product solve?
The O8 compact design is an optimum choice where space is at a premium in handling technology and robotics. Thanks to the new interface for the communication medium "IO-Link" the switch point can easily be set or a continuous distance value to the nearest millimetre can be provided.
What is the main advantage of your product for customers?
The O8 guarantees a reliable distance measurement thanks to its colour-independent operating principle and reliable background suppression with a diode array. This allows correct detection of small, flat or reflective objects.
Why would you refer to your product as "intelligent"?
The O8 reliably detects objects at a distance of up to 80 mm and directly transmits the acquired data to the controller via the communication interface "IO-Link". If an object to be detected cannot be recognised this means absence or wrong installation of the part, automatically triggering, for example, the rejection of a faulty PCB.
What else is important?
With the quick mounting set the sensor can be mounted with just one M3 screw within seconds.
