Time of Flight (TOF) principle: light measured by time of flight

Telemecanique OsiSense XUK8T products are distance measurement sensors.

TOF sensor

To ensure smooth and steady flow of your packaging and handling process, you need to accurately measure and control the proximity of objects moving down the conveyor belt. The OsiSense™ XUK8T compact photoelectric laser sensors offer reliable detection with high accuracy background suppression. Ultra-precise distance measurement is enabled by the time of flight (TOF) method using light velocity.

These sensors are dedicated to tasks involving the measurement and control of objects with a variety of surfaces, over long distances. They provide reliable and accurate distance measurement, even with tilted, clear, reflective or luminous objects.
