SensoPart's F 10 subminiature sensor series now includes LED sensors as well as laser sensors that includes a proximity switch and a blue light version for light-absorbing objects. Courtesy: SensoPartSensoPart has expanded their F 10 subminiature sensor series to include LED sensors as well as laser sensors that includes a proximity switch with adjustable background suppression and a blue light version for light-absorbing objects.

Measuring just 21.1 x 14.6 x 8 mm3 and weighing only 3 g, the tiny proximity switches can be mounted directly on a robotic gripper and are therefore ideal for pick-and-place applications. They are perfect for space-saving installation in handling systems, assembly robotics and highly-integrated machines or as a low-cost alternative to fibre-optic systems. 

The F 10 blue light has been specially developed for detection of strongly light-absorbing objects such as solar cells. Another new member of the F 10 series is the LED retro-reflective light barrier FR 10-R with a high operating range (up to 1.6 m) and teach-in function.

The LED proximity switch FT 10-RH offers adjustable background suppression which means it can be adjusted to different objects and applications without modifications. Its maximum scanning range is 70 mm. Fixed focus proximity switches - also equipped with background suppression - are also available with scanning ranges of 15mm, 30 mm or 50 mm.
