Laser distance sensors
Operating principle of laser distance sensors
Laser distance sensors, using time-of-flight principle with PMD technology, have a proven “phase-based” method of reading distance accurately. By implementing the time-of-flight technology extremely long sensing ranges are possible with reliable background suppression. These photoelectric sensors provide superior optical performance independent of target color. Parameters are easy to set using a pushbutton menu and installation is simple as well.
Time-saving laser distance sensors for a variety of applications:
- Sensing of clear packaging material in conveying and palletizing applications
- Small object detection with laser pinpoint accuracy
- Level detection of solid media and opaque liquids
- Spool winding applications

Automation24 offers a great selection of laser distance sensors at low prices. ifm provides a reliable and robust line of sensors to be used where detection of small objects or precise positioning is required.
We offer a variety of ifm efector laser distance sensors in various designs, depending on the application. The Laser distance sensor O1D100 - O1DLF3KG has a range of 0.2-10 m and two programmable switching outputs. The second output can be used alternatively as an analog output for distance measurement and detection of variable target positioning. It also boasts background suppression up to 19 meters! The visible laser light allows for easy alignment and detection of the object ad background is configured via the Teach function. The Laser distance sensor O5D101 - O5DLCPKG/US has two complimentary normally closed/normally open contacts with a range of 0.03-2 m. This sensor guarantees a reliable background suppression and color-independent object detection, regardless of target orientation or surface finish.
