An even larger field of applications is now opened up for the optoNCDT 2300 high performance laser sensor. The new C-Box/2A interface converter now enables fast D/A conversion of two optoNCDT 2300 laser sensor signals. Furthermore, individual measurement values can be calculated synchronously in order to directly output parameters such as thickness, diameter or tilt angle.

The new, compact thermoIMAGER TIM Lightweight enables state-of-the-art temperature monitoring from the air. A high resolution infrared camera and a miniature PC with a combined weight of just 380 grams, offers the latest infrared measurement technology in extremely compact dimensions, which is specifically designed for flight applications such as the monitoring of photovoltaic systems.

Modern technology enables highly precision temperature monitoring in the air

In glass bottle production based on the press and blow method, the weight of the glass drop is a crucial factor in ensuring a smooth production process. Harsh ambient conditions, particularly strong vibrations, present a huge challenge for the measurement technology involved. Therefore, Micro-Epsilon has developed a special EDS long-stroke sensor in cooperation with the German IS machine builder GPS.

Customer-specific sensors ensure high quality in container glass production

scanCONTROL laser profile sensors prevent machine damage in paper production. The sensors are used to inspect the paper web which needs to be smoothed and carried through the calender precisely in a single line.

Exact web-edge detection in paper production

The new scanCONTROL 3D-View software enables fast, three-dimensional visualization of point cloud data that has been precisely measured with scanCONTROL profile sensors. The software offers the user numerous new features, optimized performance and improved ease of use.

The capaNCDT 6112 capacitive measurement systems are designed for dynamic displacement, distance and position measurement. As well as a high bandwidth of up to 20kHz, these controllers stand out due to their compact design and high performance combined with a favorable price/performance ratio. The controller and the sensors can be adapted to suit customer-specific applications.

The confocalDT 2421 and 2422 controllers open up new possibilities in precision distance and thickness measurement on different surfaces. The two-channel variant is an innovation whereby two confocal sensors are connected to a controller. Particularly suitable for high volume applications, the new system offers a favorable price/performance ratio combined with high precision.

Continuous quality control of press tools used in the production of pharmaceutical tablets is imperative. Micro-Epsilon measurement technology enables for the first time easy, automatic inspection that has to date only been possible at great expense due to the challenging surface properties of the tools. In this measurement task, a confocal sensor and an optical micrometer are used.

The new optoNCDT 1320 and 1420 laser triangulation sensors from Micro-Epsilon are now even more versatile due to extended measuring ranges. They are now also available with new measuring ranges of 100 and even 200mm and extend therefore their application possibilities.

Extended measuring ranges create more application possibilities for new laser sensors

High precision, compactness and ease of use - the new thicknessSENSOR enables non-contact, wear-free thickness measurements. The measurement system is easy to integrate and provides high precision results together with an unmatched price/performance ratio.
