The ultimate in light weight sensorsWith the new OD Mini short range distance sensor, SICK says it has delivered one of the world’s most lightweight and precise displacement sensors incorporating an easy-to-use display and control.
The SICK OD Mini achieves micron resolution and millisecond responsiveness in a rugged, compact and lightweight unit making it ideal for precision measurement and positioning applications where high levels of accuracy are demanded, especially at high speeds, for example for positioning of robotic gripper arms, or in precision machining.
The SICK OD Mini’s high performance measurement capability also means it can be used for quality duties such as inspection of manufacturing tolerances, and even for sorting and classification. The CMOS receiver promises high machine availability by eliminating the possibility of false readings due to the brightness, colour or reflectivity of the object’s surface.
“The SICK OD Mini is a real advance in short range distance sensing – especially for providing an ‘eye’ on the business end of moving equipment such as a robotic gripper arms, or for similar dynamic applications,” explains David Hannaby, product manager for imaging and measurement.
