Light scanners LPS, LRS, LES

Scanners LPS / LES / LRS - The better and cheaper solution for many new areas of application

Reliable object detection no longer needs to be a matter of price.

 Our new light section sensors provide a cost-effective alternative in many areas of application. Our new light section sensors can be applied wherever large objects need to be detected reliably, quickly and accurately across longer distances but without extremely high requirements when it comes to precision. The large measurement range of up to 800 mm opens up completely new application fields using proven light section sensor technology. The new light section sensors take over where, for lack of alternatives, oversized and thereby cumbersome sensor solutions have been used up to now.


The secret of success:


The LPS sensor is used wherever sizes and positions of stationary or moving objects are to be measured. An additional encoder connection permits the creation of 3D data when scanning moving objects. This opens up a large range of application possibilities in position, contour and volume measurement.


Function data:

•Laser line 600 mm at a distance of 800 mm
•Measurement time: 10 ms
•Measurement range: 200 – 800 mm
•Compact size: 160 × 74 × 56 mm
•Interface: Ethernet
•Optional: Encoder


•Case picking
•Gripper control
•Measurement of free formed surfaces
•3D Measurement of moving objects







The LES sensors determine the dimensions and position of objects via their edges. By detecting height differences the sensor calculates and transfers accurate object positions. That way heights and widths or positions are reliably provided as data for further processing. At the same time one or more edge positions can be output via the individual configuration.


Function data:

•Data calculation and processing directly inside the sensor ;
•Measurement time: 10 ms;
•Measurement range: 200 – 800 mm;
•Compact size: 160 × 74 × 56 mm;
•Interface: Ethernet, analog or PROFIBUS;
•Up to 4 measurement fields in 16 inspection tasks ;


•Width and height measurement of timber or cartons;
•Determinig width and diameter of roll goods;
•Edge or stack height measurement of stackable material.







Line Range Sensors are designed to perform proximity object detection along the laser line. Comparable to a light barrier or laser scanner, the sensor scans and detects the presence of objects in up to 16 detection fields. With individual configuration, one sensor can be used to detect single or multiple objects.


Function data:

•Data calculation and processing directly inside the sensor Response time: 10 ms;
•Scanning area: 200 – 800 mm;
•Compact size: 160 × 74 × 56 mm;
•Interface: Ethernet, I/O or PROFIBUS;
•Up to 16 detection fields in 16 inspection tasks.


•Zero check of cases;
•Single or multiple track presence/absence detection on transport systems;
•Check whether object or lid are present.
