  • Offer Profile
  • We set our standards not by what is possible today
    but by what can be achieved in the future

    We have followed this concept since our founding and have thus laid the foundation for customer satisfaction and continuous growth. Created in 1994, SensoPart is today one of the leading suppliers in industrial sensor technology. Our concept: speed, combined with ability for innovation, quality and customer orientation.

    For the following is as true as ever: it is not size that counts but speed.
Product Portfolio
  • Optical sensors

      • Analog sensors

      • Fast and accurate measurement, precise positioning and detection of a wide range of materials – distance measurement is a central requirement in many areas of automation technology. Our optical sensors use the triangulation method for working ranges under 1 m, time-of-flight measurement is used for greater operating distances.
      • Color, contrast & luminescence sensors

      • If products are to be automatically detected or sorted in an industrial process, object colours or coloured markings can be detected using SensoPart contrast or colour sensors.
      • Light barriers and photoelectric switches

      • The retro-reflective light barrier combines transmitter and receiver in one housing.The light emitted by the transmitter is reflected by a reflector.The receiver evaluates the reflected light.The small size of the reflector is advantageous. In addition, it is easy to install being a passive element, thus not requiring connection.

        Transmitter and receiver of through-beam sensors are separate. This means that the emitted light has to travel the distance between transmitter and receiver only once. Therefore they are called through-beam sensors.These types can reach very large scanning ranges.

        The photoelectric proximity switches combine transmitter and receiver in one housing. The light emitted by the transmitter is reflected by the target object. The receiver evaluates this reflected light.
      • Fibre optic amplifiers and optical fibres

      • The FL 20 – the David amongst the Goliaths: It covers all the requirements of optical sensor technology in small spaces, offering highprecision detection with extreme ease of use.

        The FL 70 R-..D is the high-end sensor for fibre optics with a 4 digit display.It is characterised by simple settings and many additional functions, e.g. fine adjustment of the switch point, inversion of the switch output, adjustment of accuracy and speed, window programming, time functions and tamperproof protection. The display is always clearly visible thanks to a 180° rotatable screen.
      • Slot sensors and optical windows

      • The main feature of our fork sensors is their reliability with utmost accuracy.
        Even very small objects are reliably detected. High switching frequencies enable the detection of moving objects. All versions have a plug connection and use visible red light.

    • Further sensors

        • Ultrasonic sensors

        • Ultrasonic sensors use a short high frequency acoustic pulse as measuring medium. This is emitted towards e.g. an object which reflects it back towards the sensor as an echo. The time of flight can be used to determine e.g. distance. Ultrasonic sensors are often used in applications where the physical principle of optical sensors reaches its limits, i.e. the detection of transparent objects or liquids. Another typical application is level measurement e.g. of bulk goods from a long distance.
        • Inductive sensors

        • Inductive proximity sensors are indispensable in industry today. They use an alternating magnetic field produced by an oscillator as their measuring medium. If a metallic object enters this magnetic field, the oscillation amplitude changes. This is analysed electrically. In contrast to optical or ultrasonic sensors, they are however only for use in close-up range. Typical operating distances vary between 0.5 mm and 40 mm.

      • Vision Sensors and systems

      • Most of the inspection tasks that are required in practice can be solved with one of our VISOR® vision sensors that are ready for use in just a few steps. A powerful smart camera in compact tightly sealed sensor housings with uniform dovetail mounting forms the basis of our VISOR® vision sensor and Eyesight vision systems. Among other features, it has integrated signal processing, LED Illumination (white, red, infrared, UV), data interfaces and digital I/Os, integrated optics or C-mount, as well as user-friendly configuration software.
          • VISOR® Object

          • The VISOR® detects the right part in the wrong place – and vice-versa.
            Objects with complex shapes and details that also occasionally turn up in unexpected positions – a classic switching sensor would be totally out of its depth with such detection tasks. Not the VISOR® object detection sensor from SensoPart: it always keeps track of everything, instantaneously detecting defective parts and parts in the wrong position, angular orientation or sequence (or a combination of all of these). With its highly accurate detection of position and orientation, the VISOR® is one of the best in its class. With its high processor power, its expanded field-of-view (Wide VGA) and its very bright LED illumination, it masters almost all current image-processing tasks.

            Five detectors plus position detection
            Pattern comparison, contour detection, brightness detection, grey threshold detection and contrast detection. Position tracking allows reliable detection of such features even if they are not accurately and repeatedly in the taught-in position. All evaluations take place relative to the current part position and orientation. You can also master demanding pick-and-place applications with this powerful tool!

              • Glue dot present?

              • Early detection by checking presence (here using seals for the beverages packaging industry as an example) long before final quality assurance, preventing expensive rejects later on.
              • Position and orientation tolerance measurement

              • The sensor “learns” the contours and their direction on the basis of a picture, and reliably reacts to deviations.It masters the situation even if the screws were to lie laterally.
              • Spout present or not?

              • Too deeply shrunken – or not deep enough? During the production of blood bags the contour detector of the vision object sensor keeps an eye on all the essential details.

            • VISOR® Code Reader

            • The Vision code reader for printed, punched and laser-etched codes.
              Identification of products, components or packaging from printed or directly marked – punched or laser-etched – codes is common practice in many sectors of industry today. The Vision code reader from SensoPart immediately detects which par t is in front of it: it can easily read numerous types of barcodes as well as printed and directly marked data matrix codes according to ECC 200 standard, and this on any base (metal, plastic, paper, glass). The sensor can even routinely decipher askew or warped codes or codes on convex, reflective or transparent surfaces.
              Applications
              • Product labelling and identification
              • Automated product tracking
              • Order picking, quality assurance
              Sectors
              • Automotive and automotive supply industry
              • Food and drink industry

              • Laboratory automation
              • Solar industry
                • Difficult background:

                • Directly marked ECC codes are marked on a range of different base materials.The Vision code reader reads quickly and reliably whatever the background or printing procedure.
                • Difficult to decipher?

                • In contrast to printed labels, ECC 200 codes which are laser-etched on glass, are particularly difficult to read due to poor contrast. The Vision code reader proves an accomplished code cracker in such cases.
                • Child’s play:

                • Not all codes are as easy to read as on this item. The Vision code reader is however not mislead by dirty, smeared, warped or partially-damaged codes.
                • HIGHLIGHTS

                  • Reliably reads barcodes as well as printed and directly marked data matrix codes, also reads several codes simultaneously and mixed 1D-/2D codes
                  • Additional object detection for features outside the code
                  • Evaluation of quality parameters according to ISO/IEC 15415 and AIM DPM 2006

                  • String comparison with report via the digital signal output
                  • EtherNet/IP and DHCP support
                  • Hand-held scanners also avaliable
              • VISOR® Robotic

              • An eye on everything – the expert for robotics applications

                Expectations of today’s robotics solutions are steadily rising in the context of Industry 4.0, paired with a simultaneous desire for greater ease-of-use. And this is precisely where the VISOR®  Robotic demonstrates its outstanding ability. Available in several versions, it offers the perfect solution for a variety of automation tasks. Designed with integrated and standardised interfaces, VISOR® Robotic can be easily incorporated in existing installations and systems, and thanks to different calibration methods and flexible data structures, it is also suited to a diverse range of procedures.

                Highlights:

                • Easy to use configuration software
                • Different detectors for locating up to 10,000 components
                • Gripper space check
                • Result-offset correction in VISOR® software for simple adjustment of gripper point
                  • Learn more about the VISOR® Robotic

                  • Robots are assisting human colleagues in more and more production tasks. To be able to respond to changing situations, such as varying part shapes or collection positions, with similar flexibility, robots require reliable information on the environment, and in a format that they understand. The new VISOR®Robotic from SensoPart converts data and supplies all information in robot coordinates for immediate use by the robot systems
                  • Picking up components

                  • Feeding systems in a production line are becoming increasigly versatile – in addition to universal trays, components can be supplied with utmost flexibility using hopper feeders. Thanks to the VISOR® Robotic, components can be reliably located and gripped with both feed options. When loose components are supplied, the sensor not only checks their position but also inspects the free space around the gripper. The VISOR® determines both sets of information and sends them to the robot controller via one of the integrated and  standardised process interfaces. The process is managed on the basis of this information – the object is gripped or the feeder is triggered. The application can also be flexibly adapted to individual goods carriers without the need for a costly centring device. The VISOR® detects the position and the fill level of the tray and transmits this information to the robot. If the camera is mounted in a stationary manner, this is cycle time-neutral.
                  • Placing parts

                  • What happens after components have been reliably collected by the gripper? The VISOR® Robotic also supplies important information for the next work steps, and demonstrates its skills in robot-controlled applications, such as the placing of screws, the mounting of clips or the application of glue. The detection of component positions is carried out effortlessly; this allows the correction of any offset and increases the quality of production. Knowledge of the exact position of a component ensures, for example, the precise insertion of a windscreen. Mechanical effort is reduced, and the production line becomes even more flexible. The VISOR®Robotic concept enables direct communication between the VISOR® and the robot, an additional instance is no longer necessary for many applications.
                  • VISOR® calibration plate

                  • Automatic correction of errors caused by distortion ensures precise results. Four available versions cover diverse fields of view and working distances.
                • VISOR® Colour

                • The Vision colour sensor specialises in every type of colour.
                  Colour is an impor tant characteristic when detecting and distinguishing objects in the production process. Whether it is coloured markings in quality assurance, coloured imprints and labels, LEDs or display elements, assignment of cable harnesses or the degree of browning of baked goods – industry is much more colourful than you think. And not every colour is the same ...

                  Luminous or "non-colour"?
                  Conventional colour sensors have to pass when dealing with luminous objects or the "non-colours" white, grey and black. The Vision colour sensor from SensoPart knows no such limitations – it not only "sees" objects of any shape and colour but on top of that also supplies additional information on colour intensity and the position of the object sought. There is no question about it: where conventional sensors only see grey on grey, SensoPart Vision sensors are full of colour! Applications
                  • Presence and position check

                  • Packing industry and logistics
                    • Is the O ring present?

                    • Does it fit perfectly, in the right place? Evaluation of colour characteristics enables a simple presence and position check using the Vision colour sensor.
                    • Correct assignment?

                    • Is the right cable in the allocated place on the connector? The Vision colour sensor identifies, sorts and checks the taught colours and also detects lack of colour.
                    • How it lights up:

                    • Conventional colour sensors cannot detect active colours. Only the Vision colour sensor can see whether the third LED in the fifth row is really green and does not light up red and whether the colour intensity meets the specification.
                    • HIGHLIGHTS

                      • High-capacity detection of colour and colour intensity
                      • Detection of active (i. e. luminous) components
                      • Detection of “non-colours“ (white, grey, black)

                      • High detection accuracy even with very slight differences in colour shade
                  • VISOR® Solar

                  • The Vision solar sensor has a trained eye for solar cells.
                    The solar industry is booming – solar cells have now become industrial mass-produced products. This involves a continuously increasing cost pressure – a sound, process-concurrent quality control of sensitive silicon wafers is therefore a must.
                    The new Vision solar sensor from SensoPar t is par ticularly effective: It enables early detection of wafer cracks and defects and thus avoids the unnecessary cost of machine downtimes.

                    Plug and Play
                    Use of the Vision solar sensor is simple and uncomplicated in comparison with a conventional image processing solution. The relevant functions for wafer and cell inspection, from the detection of the size and shape of the wafer to the location of defects and the setting of processing speed and inspection accuracy, are already pre-configured so that the sensor is ready for operation in just a few mouse clicks. It is fast, costs little and functions perfectly. Sunny times are ahead!
                      • Essential features in view:

                      • The Vision solar sensor operates precisely and reliably even in fast cycle processes. Inspection criteria can be quickly and easily defined with the aid of the straightforward operating software.
                      • Reliable detection of defects:

                      • The Vision solar sensor can detect minimal contour defects (2 x 2 pixels). Evaluation of subpixels enables a further increase in inspection accuracy.
                      • Unavoidable risk of cracks:

                      • Silicon wafers are only a few tenths of a millimetre thick and very brittle, which means that damage during the production process can never be completely excluded. This is no problem, provided it is detected early on!
                      • HIGHLIGHTS

                        • Automatic detection of wafer and cell geometry, with chamfer (monocrystalline wafer) and without chamfer (polycrystalline wafer)
                        • Reliable detection of imperfections on straight and curved contours
                        • Suitable for proximity mode and reflector mode applications
