The optical motion sensor OBS … was developed for the detection of advance and rotary movements in a wide range of materials with diameters of 1 mm or more.
The sensor is positioned at a distance of 30 mm above the surface awaiting detection and motion is reliably detected at a speed of up to 1 m/sec. A stationary state, motion or the exceeding of typical motion speeds are signalled using a sensitivity setting and NC / NO function. Brief stationary states of up to one second, which arise during cyclic motion, are reliably suppressed using an adjustable pulse extension.
For contactless feed control, also suitable at reduced speed and wires
Detection of metallic, non-metallic and shiny surfaces, also at minimal speed
Robust metal casing
High protection class
Non-contact detection of approaching and departing elements up to 6 m
Detection range and pulse streching adjustable
Mounting behind non-metallic materials possible
Switching outputs for detection of approximation and distance
