More information on Sensors

What are Sensors?

What are Sensors?
Sensors are sensing components that detect, measure, analyze, and process various changes that occur on productions sites, such as changes in position, length, height, displacement, and appearance. They also contribute to predicting and preventing future events.

Recommended Types of Sensors

Proximity Sensors

Proximity Sensors

Proximity Sensors are available in models using high-frequency oscillation to detect ferrous and non-ferrous metal objects and in capacitive models to detect non-metal objects. Models are available with environment resistance, heat resistance, resistance to chemicals, and resistance to water.

Types of Proximity Sensors

Cylindrical
Cylindrical
These Proximity Sensors use high-frequency oscillation. They resist heat, chemicals, and water better than Rectangular Sensors. They are available in both shielded and unshielded models.
Rectangular
Rectangular
These Proximity Sensors use high-frequency oscillation. There are available in a wide range of sizes to enable selection to match the installation location.
Separate Amplifier
Separate Amplifier
With these Proximity Sensors (high-frequency oscillation), the Amplifier and Sensor Head are separated to enable downsizing and facilitate adjustment.
Capacitive
Capacitive
Capacitive Proximity Sensors can be used to detect non-metal objects, such as liquids and plastics.

Photomicrosensors

Photomicrosensors

These Optical Sensors provide a compact, low-cost method to detect workpieces. Many models are available, including Slot-type Sensors (through-beam) for non-modulated or modulated light, Reflective Sensors, and Sensors with separate emitters and receivers.

Types of Photomicrosensors

Slot-type
Slot-type
The emitter and receiver are set in a U shape to enable easy handling.
Through-beam
Through-beam
Through-beam Sensors have separate emitters and receivers to enable setting them at the required distance.
Slot-type / Reflective
Slot-type / Reflective
With Slot-type Sensors, the emitter and receiver are set in a U shape to enable easy handling. With Reflective Sensors, light is shown on the workpiece and reflected light is detected.
Limited-reflective
Limited-reflective
Convergent Reflective Sensors detect workpieces that are only a specific distance from the Sensor. They can be effectively used when there are background objects.
Diffuse-reflective
Diffuse-reflective
With Reflective Sensors, light is shown on the workpiece and reflected light is detected.
Retro-reflective
Retro-reflective
With Retro-reflective Sensors, a Reflector is set and the Sensor detects whether light is reflected back from the Reflector. They are effective for precise, stable detection.

Photoelectric Sensors

Photoelectric Sensors

Photoelectric Sensors detect photo-optical workpieces. OMRON provides many varieties of Sensor, including diffuse-reflective, through-beam, retro-reflective, and distance-settable Sensors, as well as Sensors with either built-in or separate amplifiers.

Fiber Sensors

Fiber Sensors

With these Separate-amplifier Sensors, the light from the Amplifier is transmitted through a fiber to enable detection in narrow places, other locations with limited access.

Rotary Encoders

Rotary Encoders

Rotary Encoders measure the number of rotations, the rotational angle, and the rotational position.
