          Digital CMOS Laser Sensor

          GV series

          Other Convenient Sensing Algorithms

          Edge hold: Detection of a workpiece on a conveyor.

          This operation mode ignores slow distance changes and detects only sudden changes in height (workpieces).
          The GV Series detects the change of the distance so the detection is not affected by the traveling speed of the workpieces.

          Surface Detection Mode


          Translucent plastic container

          Some workpieces reflect the light from both top and bottom surfaces, making detection difficult.
          The surface detection mode ignores all other reflections and detects only the nearest surface.

          Clamp function

          When the target comes too close to the sensor head



          rubber sheet

          Even when the target comes too close to the sensor head and does not enter the detecting area, this function keeps the previous ON/OFF state.
