SMARTEYE® SmartDot®

New product

The SMARTEYE® SmartDot® Laser Sensor from Tri-Tronics Company, is designed for precise, small parts detection at long ranges. The consistently small laser beam is used to detect such things as a tab on a battery, a misaligned or missing bottle cap, or a cross-threaded can lid.

More info

The SMARTEYE® SmartDot® Laser Sensor from Tri-Tronics Company, is designed for precise, small parts detection at long ranges. The consistently small laser beam is used to detect such things as a tab on a battery, a misaligned or missing bottle cap, or a cross-threaded can lid. The SmartDot Laser Sensor can be easily aligned, repeatedly in order to be used in the inspection and rejection of micro-parts such as the legs on an IC chip, threads on a bolt or screw, and to check for a number of critical identifying features on miniature products, like syringes and other biomedical devices.

The SMARTEYE® SmartDot® Laser Sensor has an OLED display providing the kind of visual confirming information which makes setup a breeze, and instills confidence in understanding just how well the sensor will perform long-term. Displaying all the necessary information to determine proper setup for maximum up-time was the ultimate deciding factor in including the OLED display in this highly capable sensing device. Should any applications require small spot precision, or micro part detection or inspection, the new SmartDot Laser Sensor from Tri-Tronics should be the first choice.
