Rapid, precise micro measurement

Home Engineering Automation & Control Rapid, precise micro measurement

THANKS to its high resolution, the OMH sensor detects tiny objects in standard mode with an accuracy in the micrometre range. Even precise arrangements and positioning of delicate components, such as those used in battery cell production, can be reliably ensured with the high-precision OMH.

Additional modes

In fast conveyor belt applications, the sensor achieves impressive measuring frequencies of 1200 Hz in speed mode. In power mode, the OMH maintains this micrometre precision even under challenging conditions, such as in PCB assembly. This is an outstanding feature, as ordinary distance sensors often fail to reliably detect such objects.

Up for a challenge

Owing to its compact and robust design as well as its analogue output, the highly precise OMH also performs well in retrofit applications. IO-Link ensures easy parameter setting and data use in fully automated processes.
