EX-L200 laser sensor

  • EX-L200 laser sensor

The world’s smallest laser sensor with a built-in amplifier

EX-L200 laser sensors are made to detect minute objects with utmost accuracy. Despite its miniature size, the thru-beam type (EX-L211x) can detect minute objects with a diameter of just 0.3mm, and the spot reflective type EX-L221x can even detect gold wire whose diameter is a mere 0.01mm. To facilitate solving application tasks, the sensors come equipped with a potentiometer and two indicator LEDs. For the thru-beam type, reflective material on the receiver allows you to visualize the laser beam, easing beam-axis alignment.

  • Visible red laser diode
  • Sensitivity adjuster
  • Available as thru-beam, retroreflective and spot reflective types
  • Line spot type
  • IP67 degree of protection
  • 2 indicator LEDs


  • Sensor mounting bracket
