Monitoring of part picking during transport

The PowerProx MultiTask photoelectric sensor monitors the part picking of a pick-and-place robot during transport until the safe placing of the workpiece. Thanks to its very small housing, the photoelectric sensor can be mounted above the tool flange in order to save space. This means the sensor does not also have to be replaced when exchanging the gripper. Despite its exceptional compact form, the sensor detects the presence of a workpiece up to 800 mm away.
