Sensors for Factory Automation

Panasonic offers a wide variety of Factory Automation Sensors including, Area, Color Mark, Laser, Safety Light Curtains, Photoelectric and more.


  • Laser ON/OFF SensorsSensors allow detecting smallest objects from a long distance.
  • Measurement SensorSensors that output an analog signal to measure distances of up to 250mm (± 150mm) with a resolution down to 0.01µm
  • Pressure Sensor/Flow SensorSensors to measure flow and pressure of gases or liquids
  • Trigonometric sensorsOptical sensors using the diffuse reflective technique (also called background suppression (BGS)), which allows color-independent object detection. These sensors combine sender and emitter in the same housing and do not need reflectors. Perfect for people and animal detection.
  • Mark / Colour sensorsSensors able to detect marks and colors.
