Easing automation challenges

Datasensing is Datalogic’s Sensors, Safety, Machine Vision, and Micro Detectors range. Developing, manufacturing, and supplying 222 product lines with more than 22,500 standard and custom part numbers. 

Headquartered in Italy, Datasensing are committed to easing automation challenges, including machine vision deep learning software and innovating sensing solutions for the industrial automation market. 

OEM Automatic are a distributor/supplier for Datasensing in the UK and Ireland.

Machine Vision

The machine vision range from Datasensing includes a range of smart devices for in-line automated inspection and factory automation. The range includes smart cameras, industrial cameras, and industrial vision processors. 

Smart camaras are self contained vision inspection systems for easy integration.

The Datasensing range of GigE industrial digital cameras feature the latest CMOS imagers with resolutions from VGA up to 5MP.

Industrial vision processors enable multi-camera vision solutions.

Area Scan Cameras

The majority of applications for image acquisition use area scan cameras, the sensors used in these types of cameras have a large matrix of pixels to allow for 2D images to be generated in one exposure cycle. There are different interfaces to consider when selecting an area scan camera, with various interfaces available from our suppliers, Datalogic, Sony and Basler, suitable for all types of applications. GigE (Gigabit Ethernet) is a universally applicable digital interface, GigE vision standard mean there is a high degree of standardisation, so GigE cameras can be easily integrated into all image processing applications. With cable lengths up to 100 meters and compatibility with multi-camera set ups. (Basler Ace, Ace 2, and Ace MED, Sony XCG and XCG Polarized and Datalogic M-Series) USB3.0 interface is notable for its high transfer bandwidth and real-time compatibility and is completely plug and play ready. USB3.0 is becoming a major interface for industrial, medical and mass market applications. (Basler Ace, Ace 2, Ace MED, Pulse, and Dart and Sony XCU) CameraLink interface cameras are specifically designed for industrial applications so can handle large amounts of data easily and securely, currently the recommended standard interface for data rates is from 100MB/s to 800MB/s. (Basler Ace and Beat, Sony XCL) CoaXPress interface (CXP), unlike other interfaces, requires an interface card, however it can transfer large data volumes at high transmission speeds across long distances, which is valuable in certain applications offering possibilities for high sophisticated image processing solutions. (Basler Boost) OEM Automatic supply area scan cameras from Basler, Datalogic & Sony, the range includes cameras to capture 2D images in mono and colour and the innovative polarised cameras to detect the direction of reflected light. Our extensive range from leading suppliers, includes GigE, USB, CoaXpress, CameraLink & Bcon (LVDS & MIPI) interfaces, resolutions from VGA to 61MP, rolling and global shutters and monochrome or colour options.

Smart Cameras

In a compact and robust housing, our P, A and T Series smart cameras are designed for demanding, industrial applications. All our cameras offer integrated processing, LED lighting, modular optics as well as industrial data interfaces via Profinet and ETHERNET/IP along with the usual digital I/Os.

Smart Sensors

Vision sensor with simple user-friendly software that has flexible tools for quality control, identification, and positioning. The Vision camera is complete with optics, LED lighting and electronics in a compact housing. The software is attached to the vision sensor and guides the user step by step through the parameter setting.


Sensors are essential for presence detection, inspection or assembly, and for measuring dimensions, distance, or position, in the industrial automation industry. Datasensing supply a range of photoelectric, ultrasonic and inductive sensors.

Photoelectric sensors are available in many sizes, versions, and functionalities, for different detection applications from the smallest to the fastest moving objects, different surfaces, colour or even invisible fluorescent marks, as well as dimensions and distance measurement. 

Inductive sensors are designed specifically for metal parts detection at shorter distances, they are suitable for harsh environments as they are resistant to dust, liquids, oil, or grease.

Application Photosensors

A wide range of special sensors can be found for applications that require greater accuracy or more demanding detection. Light curtains cover a larger area, fork photocells are suitable for accurate identification. Luminescence and colour sensors are suitable for the detection of fluorescent substances and different colors. Label sensors available for identification of various labels and marks. Laser sensors with analog outputs can be found to measure distance with an accuracy of up to 1mm.

Standard Photosensors

Basic photocells are available in either M18 barrel or block form design, covering almost all industrial applications. Both the M18 and block form models are available with either plastic or metal body, The M18 models have options of either radial or axial optics. The range also includes laser models as well as a number of special versions, such as models for transparent objects. We offer a variety of accessories with a wide range of connectors, brackets and reflectors.

Inductive sensors

Inductive sensors are used for position indication, impulse or motion detector for metallic objects. The sensor has no moving parts and is therefore suitable for applications with high contact frequency. Due to the compact and easy-mounted design of the sensor as well as the contact-free function, the sensor is normally not subjected to mechanical wear. We can offer a range of units from M5 to M30 in cylindrical formats, as well as a range of rectangular units.

SVS Sensor

The Smart-VS can detect the presence of parts such as a cap or label on bottles or vials, on any material or surface including glass, plastic, metal, and shiny objects. Typical applications include filling, closing, and packaging machines but the versatility of the Smart-VS makes it suitable for use in other sectors such as automotive or automatic assembly of mechanical or electronic parts. It also finds some it's greatest uses in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and cosmetics packaging sectors.


Safety devices are essential in industrial automation for protecting operators in potentially hazardous areas, plants, or machinery. Datasensing can provide a range of safety devices, including safety lights curtains, safety laser scanners and LIDAR. 

Safety light curtains and barriers are photoelectric safety devices that provide protection from hazardous machinery and can monitor large areas. Infrared beams are transmitted from the transmitter to the receiver and when interrupted a dual output stop signal can stop machinery from operating. 

Safety laser scanners are suited for configurable protection and can even be used in dynamic applications such as robot cells and automated guided vehicles. Designed to withstand the harshest environments, safety laser scanners have a 275° viewing angle and can be combined to give full 360° protection of an area, with safety and warning zone functionality. 

LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) uses time-of-flight infrared laser technology to construct a 360° view for the guidance of automated guided vehicles, laser guided vehicles and automated guided forklifts. Lidar can be mounted on suitable vehicles to provide laser-based navigation by providing distance and intensity measurement to the guidance systems.
