ifm’s O3M sesnor is a 3D sensor that improves the overall functionality and safety around mobile machinery and plants.

Users can install the smart sensor on loaders, mining machinery, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) or other vehichles and machinery.

Thanks to the sensor’s automatic object detection feature, it can emit a warning or interact with the control system to apply vehicle brakes. This makes the O3M sensor highly useful as collision warning avoidance.

The sensor is also capable of overcoming challenges around visibility, proving itself especially useful where there are difficult ambient light situations such as sunlight, or materials with reflective characteristics.

The O3M sensor is designed for use in outdoor environments where there is high shock, vibration and environmental resistance.
