Welcome to Your Industry

PNG//smart generation sensors are at home in a wide range of sectors and industries. They help to optimize processes, make systems smarter and make entire productions even more efficient. The PNG//smart sensors have numerous features that are advantageous for any industrial use.
Automotive industry icon gray


Particularly in robot applications, the automotive industry benefits from the low weight of PNG//smart sensors, universal formats and consistent availability in laser class 1. Protective housings can also prevent damage from weld spatter. Reliable detection of black and glossy objects is just as advantageous in this industry as high precision object detection via fine laser light beams. PNG//smart sensors meet these requirements perfectly.

Electronics industry icon gray


The PNG//smart series line sensors are particularly suitable for the detection of objects with punched or perforated surfaces, such as PCBs. The high precision thanks to the aligned optical axes, the detection of dark and shiny objects with blue light and the avoidance of reciprocal influence in confined spaces make the PNG//smart sensors the ideal product for this industry.

Beverages industry icon gray


The high protection class IP67/IP68 makes the PNG//smart sensors ideally suited for the wet environments of the beverage industry. Precise detection of transparent PET and glass bottles, as well as high-speed films, is another advantage of this product range in the industry. Ambient conditions can also be compensated for by dynamic readjustment of the switching threshold – a major advantage for this industry.

Wood industry icon gray


The robust housings of PNG//smart sensors ensure perfect stability in the harsh environment of the wood industry. Thanks to the condition monitoring diagnostic function via IO-Link and the dust extraction tube, the dusty and dirty work environments can be completely controlled. This industry also benefits from the long ranges and functional reserve of the sensors, which are also designed for the detection of dark and wet surfaces.

Logistics icon gray


PNG//smart sensors offer numerous advantages for the logistics industry: High speeds, long ranges, low black/white deviations, e.g. in storage boxes, no reciprocal influence of the sensors in tight spaces and low energy consumption. In addition, the parameterization of the sensors in de-energized state via NFC as well as the precisely aligned optics are further advantages of this product generation.

Pharmaceuticals industry icon gray


The PNG//smart series is perfect for use in the pharmaceuticals industry thanks to its ability to detect transparent refillable pens and vials, tiny parts such as syringes, needles or cannulae with precise laser sensors. Stack heights of blister packaging can also be measured at high speeds via IO-Link.
