Balluff have just created an innovative light grid that is also  very high resolution.




Balluffs new innovative light grid the BLA has a high-resolution light grid to allow for optical object recognition. It also has a fifty millimetre width as well as a range of a maximum of two metres.

Additionally, the emitter and receiver are encased in tough housing, which can easily and quickly be aligned properly implementing the live graphic display on the inbuilt multi function display. Customers can teach-in a maximum of 6 various items utilizing the buttons and can even mask objects in the way of the measuring field.


Using this method various items could be easily recognized, sorted and compared according to small variations in size. Many other applications incorporate height and presence inspections. The effect of the inspection will be available at two analogue and three digital outputs. Balluffs will also have a version that has an IO-Link interface that will be available later this year.
