Garmo Instruments has introduced Garline, a new family of affordable, simple and high-performance weld seam tracking sensors.

Garline surpasses the IP67 insulation grade and successfully performs in a -10oC / 60oC range.

Its original design incorporates materials for aerospace use that ensures optimal EMI isolation.

What makes the new Garline seam tracking sensor family different is the inclusion of a connection system adapted to new IoT Technology, avoiding the need for additional devices. Its POE switch injector supports most TCP/IP protocols.

The new Garline sensors are designed to offer easy integration both to PLC and Cobots, with only one wire being required for a complete integration. No more computers or other devices are needed. Just a POE switch injector.

Garline features a disposable, quickly replaceable and waterproof protective interior window from GorilaGlass.

The system also comes with an ARC-Swiss mounting plate with an integrated cooling system, which grants rapid and easy sensor switching.

Its electronics of four parallel processors and 4Gb of RAM computes the corrections at 45 images per second in full resolution. The system includes an innovative feature for dynamic adaptation of sensor and laser parameters between frames to correct reflection problems in applications involving varying material surface conditions.
