PROsiSense XUM8

Telemecanique Sensors introduces OsiSense XUM8 sensors for precise detection in packaging applications

With background and foreground suppression functions, new sensors improve accuracy in busy environments

Telemecanique Sensors has announced an expansion of the OsiSense™ XUM range of miniature industrial sensors. The new OsiSense XUM8 line is designed to increase control in conveying applications especially in the packaging industry, where precise detection of small objects is a key operational requirement.


Resistant to interference

When detecting packaged products moving on a conveyor belt, sensors need to overcome various types of environmental disturbance, such as the movement of operators and other conveyors in the background. This is particularly important in detection of objects of small and unconventional size. The OsiSense XUM8 are integrated photoelectric sensors that remain insensitive to this kind of noise. The FGS and BGS functions (Foreground Suppression and Background Suppression) make them ideally suited to a variety of challenging tasks, including detecting a product in a box without confusing it with the bottom of the box.


Easy installation and teaching

With a sensing distance range extending from 20 to 300 mm, the OsiSense XUM8 sensors detect all kinds of packaging material, in all colours and shapes, regardless of the type of lighting. The compact housing (32x20x12 mm) and universal fixing grip make mounting easy even in space-limited installations. Visible red beam allows easy and precise teaching and adjustment by potentiometer. Additional features include NO/NC selection with deep switches, M8 and remote M12 connectors, as well as worldwide certifications (CE, UL, CSA), and PNP/NPN versions for worldwide applicability.


Range reliability

The new line is part of the Telemecanique Sensors OsiSense XUM complete range of sensors offering robustness, high-performance detection, optimum adaptation, and simple installation in conveying and packaging applications. Requiring only half the power used by a conventional detector, the OsiSense XUM sensors visibly reduce energy consumption levels of the installation, bringing in cost savings and increasing its environmental friendliness.
