Pepperl+Fuchs’ SmartRunner technology is a combination of light section technology and a 2D vision sensor with integrated LEDs. It belongs to a family of high-precision sensors, tailored and preconfigured to handle specific applications. The optics, camera and evaluation logic are integrated into a compact housing and transform complex data into easy-to-process digital signals. Laser light technology is ideally suited to detecting, monitoring and protecting even the smallest of objects. It provides reliable measuring on any material regardless of surface contour or colour.

Easy set-up is a key feature when commissioning SmartRunner sensors. With teach-in, specific application requirements can be customised in a few seconds — without a PC or special expertise. Due to an integrated vision camera, sensors can be easily parameterised using Data Matrix control codes. It is a simple application-specific plug-and-play sensor with no complex parameterisation for application adaptation. Once a code has been generated, users can teach-in any number of sensors. The SmartRunner technology ensures ease of use for applications in the automotive industry, for machine tools, and for packaging and material handling, especially when production is frequently adjusted.
