B5W-DB Long-Distance Object Detection Sensor

Omron's sensor detects objects at a longer distance of over half a meter away

Image of Omron's B5W-DB Long Distance Object Detection SensorOmron’s B5W-DB optical sensor improves on existing technology, and can detect objects over a half meter away. The B5W-DB offers an increased sensing distance of up to 800 mm depending on the object being detected. The B5W sensor series is a key component for object detection applications and touchless switches. This sensor operates the same as the previous iterations of the B5W object detection sensors by detecting a wide range of objects, no matter the color, reflectiveness, or transparency.

Features
  • Increased range for object detection:
    • Expanded range of target applications
  • Small package can be installed in tight spaces without sacrificing internal real estate
  • Material immunity:
    • Detects a wide range of objects including white, black, transparent, and reflective
Applications
  • Packaging: detects objects on the packaging line and transparent wrapping materials
  • Hands-free: detects human hands for touchless applications
  • Labs and medical:
    • Detects clear objects for analysis equipment (glass equipment such as test tubes and microscopic slides)
