The Keyence GV Series digital complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) laser sensor uses an innovative DATUM algorithm to detect targets that conventional sensors cannot reliably detect. The GV is an optical triangulation sensor that detects shiny targets with multiple reflections as well as light-absorbing materials such as black rubber. It is designed for automatic, inline sensing applications and detects target presence or absence based on surface characteristics or target height and provides a GO/NG output. The sensor uses a larger CMOS pixel size than conventional systems to allow it to receive a greater quantity of light, resulting in highly stable detection and faster response speeds. Thus detection is stable even when the targets are moving or the background is unstable. Four models include detection ranges of 45, 130, 450, and 1000 mm.
