Sharp-Line Sensor Heads

Introducing a new high-performance head for the IL Series Stable performance for the most demanding detection

Sharp-Line Sensor Heads

The transmitter is equipped with a cylindrical lens that enables sharp-line beams.
We have overhauled the signal processing inside the head and equipped the device with a Super-Resolution Algorithm so that it is the highest-functioning model in its class.

Equipped with Three Functions that Enable Maximum Stability

Super-Resolution Algorithm included [Industry First]

This algorithm identifies differences in CMOS received light waveforms generated by changes in surface conditions of target
workpiece and automatically processes waveforms in the best manner possible. Now, you can perform stable detection without
tuning, even on metal hairlines, plastic, rubber and other workpiece that has always been difficult to detect.

Equipped with Three Functions that Enable Maximum Stability

SCAN Function with Wide Dynamic Range

SCAN Function with Wide Dynamic Range
SCAN (=Sensitive-laser Control Analyser)

The laser power, shutter time and reception gain on this device are
adjust in real-time in order to deliver stable detection faithfully for
all targets. We also developed a new digital circuit that enables a
dynamic range of x1.5 million, 2.5 times higher than past models.
Real-time controls that suit targets and their surface conditions enable
stable detection.

Sharp-Line Beam

Sharp-Line Beam

KEYENCE’s original optical system pushes the beam diameter to the
limits (25 μm), and its sharpness enables the most excellent stability
in history. We have overhauled and optimised our optical system for
spot profiling for stability in applications that, until now, yielded very
erratic results.

SCAN (=Sensitive-laser Control Analyser)

The laser power, shutter time and reception gain (gain) on this device adjust in real-time in order to deliver stable detection faithfully for all targets. We also developed a new digital circuit that enables a dynamic range of x1 million, 1.7 times higher than past models. Real-time controls that suit targets and their surface conditions enable stable detection.

Rugged Head Structure

Rugged Head Structure

The head structure was redesigned to make it rugged enough to withstand almost any environment. In addition, the housing is made of die cast SUS304 for added strength and protection.

20 million cycle service
life

The IL Series has achieved the smallest head housing in its class by adopting the unique aspherical lens. The weight of the head is a mere 60g*. The sensor head cable is designed with a robot cable. This cable is specifically designed for high cycle service life and makes the sensor ideal for robotics or other high cycle applications. *IL-030
