The Long-Range ParCon from Baumer Ltd., Southington, CT, is an analog optical line sensor that projects a continuous 24 mm-wide beam of parallel light to a reflector, permitting fast and reliable detection of moving parts as small as 0.5 mm. The sensor can also measure object widths regardless of the target's position in the measuring field. The 67 by 34 by 16.5 mm sensor can detect and measure metallic and nonmetallic objects and material edges at processing rates up to 1 kHz with resolutions up to 0.1 mm. The housing contains the sender, receiver, and specialty optics; only a reflector is needed for operation.
