What is microspot technology?

Balluff microspot sensors

Microspot  is a manufacturing technology developed to implement exceptional optical precision in extremely small housings. Therefore, the strength of the microspot photoelectric sensors is reliable detection of tiny objects in extremely tight spaces—without interference from reflections from the surrounding area. The minimum size opens a width spectrum of outstanding photoelectric sensors.

Micromote sensors are miniaturized photoelectric sensors with separate electronic processor unit. Their highly flexible, purely electric sensor cable makes them a genuine technical alternative to conventional fiber optics. 


Features of micromote Series are:

  • Optimal alignment due to highly visible light spot.
  • Smallest footprint with maximum optical performance.
  • No mutual interference since the light beam is spatially limited.
  • Versatile – even for highly demanding applications.
