Linear measurement sensors

Great flexibility in a small housing

Your Benefits

  • High travel speed linked to precise positioning increases system efficiency and improves throughput
  • Camera-based system with no moving parts increases the sensor's service life, thus reducing lifecycle costs considerably
  • Minimal housing dimensions combined with the latest industrial interfaces ensure integration into almost any system design, even where space is limited
  • Serial interfaces (RS-422, RS-485, SSI, and CANopen) offer highest flexibility and easiest system integration, hence saving costs for interface converters and protocol adaption
  • The large temperature range from –30°C to +60°C offers reliable use in many applications


Great flexibility in a small housing

Move to a position with pinpoint accuracy: The OLM100 enables quick ramp-up and ramp-down times, optimizing work processes. Fast travel speeds, high repeatability, and fast output rates make the OLM100 ideal for many applications, such as electrical overhead conveyors, rotating tables, and transport skids.
