Hamamatsu Photonics has developed a new profile sensor with embedded computing function for position sensing

27 Aug 2021

By re-engineering the position sensing circuit, Hamamatsu Photonics has developed a new profile sensor with an embedded computing function. This sensor, called model S15366-256, is specifically designed to calculate signals from the incident light spot within its processing chip and output incident light position information. Since this new profile sensor can output the incident light positions as coordinate data, it needs no external controller for computing processing. Using this new profile sensor therefore will help design and manufacture surveying equipment at a reduced size, weight, and cost. It also has functions including high-speed readout and automatic light spot tracking that are likely to open up a wide range of applications in the field of factory automation.

Sales of this new profile sensor are scheduled to start from September 1, 2021 mainly for manufacturers of surveying equipment and factory automation equipment.
