Switching sensors

Everything in view for proper switching

In this area, you will find sensor solutions that detect an object optoelectronically, ultrasonically or inductively and output a robust switching signal. Select here from a large number of different operating principles and designs.

Optical sensors

Productselector

We use light to provide solutions to many different problems

One of our core competencies are sensors that perform their detection tasks with light in a wide range of forms. For all applications that are to be solved in this way, we are able to offer you a reliable and efficient solution from our extensive product line.

Inductive switches

Productselector

Reliable detection of metallic parts

In automation technology, not just optical applications, but many other applications are predestined for inductive sensors. An array of different designs, short reaction times and large operating ranges make our inductive sensors the right solution for practically all areas of application in industrial automation. Depending on the environment or requirement in which they are used, other selection criteria such as AC/DC, reduction factor 1 or all-metal are available.

Capacitive sensors

Productselector

Detection of solid, liquid or granular objects

With these sensors highly structured and non-dimensionally stable objects e.g. the fill levels of liquids or bulk materials can also be detected in direct contact with the medium or through a non-metallic container wall and are also suitable for completeness inspections. These sensors also function reliably in an extremely dusty or dirty environment. An array of different designs and large operating ranges complement our product line to practically all areas of application in industrial automation.

Ultrasonic sensors

The all-rounders among the sensors

Ultrasonic sensors are used whenever optical systems reach their limits. Hence, partially and fully transparent or extremely dark objects can be detected just as easily as objects with reflecting surfaces or objects in dusty, vaporous or humid environments.

Fiber optic sensors

How to bend light around a corner

With the use of fiber optics and appropriate amplifiers, the area of application of optoelectronic sensors is considerably expanded. The flexible fiber optics with various head shapes can be integrated in nearly any system design. The detection range is dependent on the fiber optics and amplifiers used.

Forked sensors

Nothing gets past these forks

Sensors of this series combine transmitter and receiver into a single device and therefore feature high operational safety. They are characterized by simple mounting without alignment work as well as high sensitivity. The sensors are used for detecting small parts or for detecting labels and print marks, even on transparent films.

Light curtains

Object detection made easy

The switching light curtains from Leuze electronic are able to monitor a large measurement field and respond if sensor beams in the field are interrupted. Various resolutions and measurement field lengths enable reliable use in a variety of applications.

3D sensors

Would you like another dimension with that?

These sensors determine height contours. 3D data can be easily generated for moving objects or by moving the sensor. The measurement data can either be output for external processing or preprocessed in the sensor for convenient object measurement or detection.

Special sensors

Reliable, even when things get challenging

Under this heading are sensor solutions that must perform special detection tasks or which were developed for specific applications. Here you will find contrast and luminescence scanners as well as color sensors and systems for monitoring double sheets and splices as well as for overlap detection.
