Baumer (Southington, CT) has introduced the OADM 250, an optical laser distance sensor specifically designed to accurately detect target objects, regardless of surface properties or color, at distances from 0.2 meters to 4 meters away. Based on time of flight technology, the compact OADM 250 offers response times of less than 10ms, resolutions of 1.2mm, and repeat accuracy of ± 5mm, which delivers precise data even on moving targets. Sized at just 25 × 66 × 51 mm, the sensor fits easily into almost any application.
