Multi Pixel Technology (MPT) was developed by Pepperl+Fuchs and gives you highly reliable and interference-free distance measurement for near-range applications. The technology combines the measuring functionality of conventional distance sensors with the proven triangulation principle.
How does MPT work? With this geometric method, an emitter – LED or laser – emits a light beam to the target object, which reflects it back. The reflected light beam is then recaptured by a light-sensitive receiver in the sensor, the multi pixel array. Depending on the position of the light spot on the receiver, the distance of the object to the sensor is calculated by geometric triangulation. This is done using intelligent software algorithms.conventional distance sensors with the proven triangulation principle.
Due to the small-sized MPT measuring core, the precise distance measurement can be integrated into very small sensors for the first time – such as the R10x series. Benefit from their adaptability and explore the smallest distance sensors with an unprecedented power density!
DuraBeam Laser Technology offers you the best of both worlds! Laser sensors have a shorter durability and a lower temperature range compared to LED sensors. Pepperl+Fuchs has now used the best of both sensors to give you the strength of LED sensors and laser sensors together!
DuraBeam also uses a special beam profile, which reflects a sharply contoured, circular light spot on an object at any time. Sensors equipped with DuraBeam laser technology are ideally suited for highly accurate detection and distance measurement of small objects.
