The BOD 63M time-of-flight photoelectric laser sensor can be used for applications such as error proofing in assembly, packaging, printing and metal processing. The latest version of the sensor has a 200-millimeter dead zone, a second discrete output and resolution of less than 1 millimeter. It has a sensing range of 6 meters, suitable for many long-range applications such as hot steel ingot measurement, precise material movement and hopper level detection. The sensor can discern minute variations in targets up to almost 20 feet away.
