The laser distance sensor HG-F1 series features a lightweight and high-strength aluminum die-cast case with a built-in TOF sensor module.
The sensor unit boasts a compact and robust body and offers a long-range sensing capability.
UL , CE , CSA , FDA , UKCA approved
UL, CSA : Certified by TÜV SÜD America Inc. (NRTL)
The HG-F1 series sensor is capable of long-distance sensing so it can perform detection from above on a process line involving human workers or inside a robot's operating range from a distance.
Actual measured value can be used for setting / checking the sensing distance
The sensor unit has a 7-segment display and allows to set threshold values in mm numerically.
When multiple sensor units are used, the conventional setting method requires the adjustment of each sensor in actual operation conditions individually. With the HG-F1 series, the numerical value for the distance set in the first sensor unit can be used as a guideline for setting the distance in the second and other sensor units.
Compact and robust aluminum die-cast body
The HG-F1 series sensor has been downsized by about 80% with regards to the volume of the previous long-range distance sensor model (EQ-500 series).
The unit body is made of aluminum die-cast so it is lightweight and robust.

Easy checking of sensing position
Mode for checking the position of the emitted beam spot
In this mode, the beam emitting power is increased from the normal level and the beam flashes so that the beam spot can be seen clearly even if the sensor unit is installed at a distance. This helps to check that the sensing position is correct.
- Power OFF
- During measurement
- Mode for checking the position of the emitted beam spot. The beam flashes for 2 minutes.
* The beam spot looks differently depending on target materials, ambient conditions, and distances.
Narrow field sensing
The beam spot is smaller than that of a conventional adjustable-range distance sensor. Therefore, the sensor unit is optimal for detecting objects through a narrow gap.
- Checking the installation of door parts
- Detection of car seats
- Detection of remaining amount of sheet
