Pattern sensors

Your Benefits

  • Reliable detection, including of complex images, reduces system downtimes and rejects
  • More freedom with respect to packaging design
  • More efficient use of the product surface, as no print marks are necessary
  • Faster and easier to change formats by teaching in saved formats
  • Reliable production processes thanks to diagnosis of the teach-in and process quality
  • Quick and easy sensor alignment thanks to a visible light spot and notches on the housing
  • Short set-up times thanks to simple configuration via display, SOPAS web controls, or with PLC/HMI via Ethernet and using the software tools provided


The PS30 is a proximity scanning opto-electronic sensor. Distinctive, taught-in patterns in an image are used as a reference for the subsequent reliable detection and positioning of objects. A stable switching signal is generated at high speed thanks to new technology without special reference marks. The markless sensor is ideal for applications in the packaging industry. User-friendly configuration is offered via the sensor’s control panel, via the SOPAS configuration software, or by using the machine controller''s PLC/HMI via an Ethernet connection. Engineering tools for configuration and diagnosis are available.
