SOUTHINGTON, Conn., Nov. 3, 2014 — With the ability to identify any object independent of its color and surface, the PosCon 3-D edge sensor from Baumer can determine width and edge position for difficult applications. The PosCon 3-D does not requires a separate reflector and can reliably measure objects regardless of potential movement. Its target design allows easy system integration in an early planning stage using the sensor CAD data. Tight tolerances on beam placement is ensured. Applications include packaging machine gap control, and width or edge monitoring in lumber and paper processing.
