Due to the diverse and complex tasks required of automation products and the ever increasing importance of quality management, demands on sensors are becoming more and more specialized. Extreme precision and reliability play the decisive role when it comes to choosing a sensor. Panasonic's innovative sensor technology enables us to meet these demands. New generations of sensors are born from the consistent application of state-of-the-art technology. These sensors are especially characterized by features such as intelligence, multifunctionality and miniaturized construction.
Panasonic area sensors are general purpose, easy-to-use, non-safety light screen that emit multi light beams for detection of objects moving in specified areas. From the detection of slim or minute objects, to an advanced series of picking sensors that simplify manual assembly processes, Panasonic area sensors are an extremely versatile solution.
Panasonic fiber optic sensors and sensor heads allow for stable detection in any application, even for use in hazardous environments. With over 180 fiber optic sensor heads to choose from., you are covered from every angle, whether you need long distance, a high-temperature rating, or if you are short on mounting space.
Panasonic airflow sensors operate on heat transfer - flow and differential pressure. Silicon chip design is created from thin-film, thermally isolated bridge structure, containing both heater and temperature sensing elements. This provides rapid response to the air or gas flow and amount and direction, delivering a proportional output voltage. Amplified versions provide an enhanced output signal and less external circuitry, while unamplified versions allow additional external circuit options.
When your application calls for the precision measurement of dimensions such as thickness, diameter, and height, Panasonic has the solution. Panasonic high-quality laser displacement, inductive displacement, and collimated beam sensors provide high-speed and accurate measurement solutions.

Panasonic Micro photoelectric sensors enable stable sensing and realize miniaturization of your equipment. Available in various shapes and a wide sensing range to suit any of your application needs. These Optical Sensors provide a compact, low-cost method to detect workpieces. Many models are available, including Slot-type Sensors (through-beam) for non-modulated or modulated light, Reflective Sensors, and Sensors with separate emitters and receivers.
Panasonic factory automation sensors function as "eyes" in factory automation. The optimal detection device, e.g. a photoelectric, inductive proximity, or pressure sensor, is determined by the object to be detected (workpiece). Panasonic particular use sensors are sensors for special applications in the wafer production as well as fluid and leakage detection in the semiconductor industry.
The complete line of self-contained and amplifier separated photoelectric sensor solutions from Panasonic are anything but basic. Panasonic offers some of the smallest photoelectric sensors in the world for unmatched simplicity and versatility. Advanced features are also available in our sensors such as background/foreground suppression which protect against unwanted detection.
Panasonic pressure sensors from Panasonic offer self contained and separate head types for maximum versatility in your pressure sensing applications. All series' are available in positive pressure, vacuum, and compound pressure ranges as well as multiple port size and output options.
Panasonic inductive proximity sensor can detect metal targets approaching the sensor, without physical contact with the target. Inductive proximity sensors are roughly classified into the following three types according to the operating principle: the high-frequency oscillation type using electromagnetic induction, the magnetic type using a magnet, and the capacitance type using the change in capacitance.
Panasonic offers convenient peripheral tools and devices such as a universal sensor mounting stand, sensor checkers for beam alignment, sensor controllers and power supply unit to improve productivity.
From a bit level wire saving bus system to "sensor to PLC" connection system, Panasonic offers various solutions for simple communication link between automation devices on your factory floor.
