Distance Sensor


One of the most important tasks in industrial production is measuring distances



One of the most important tasks in industrial production is measuring distances. However, the applications are so varied that it is not possible to produce one sensor capable of fulfilling the requirements of every application. A wide range of products for measuring distances to handle the great variety of measurement tasks. Optoelectronics and ultrasonic sensor technology serve as the operating principles for the distance measurements. Sensors can be used in conjunction with a reflector, directly on the target surface or both depending on the individual sensor and application requirements. Sensors working on the basis of the triangulation principle measure an object directly. They measure a wide variety of surfaces, miniature parts, recesses or uneven areas, even in the μm range.


Two Main Types of Distance Sensors

Optical Sensors

Ultrasonic Sensors



Typical applications of distance sensor

Distance measurement and positioning on robotic gripper during pick & place applications Monitoring stack heights, double sheet detection and height measurements in the wood, packaging and handling industries
Detecting the presence of parts and components Coil diameter measurement Positioning tasks on palletisers


Applications of Distance Sensor

Positioning & Locating Dimensioning & Selecting Profiling & Multi-Sensor Systems
Level measurement Height measurement Determination of Roll diameter
