The confocal chromatic confocalDT 2422 dual-channel system enables reliable and precise thickness measurement of container glass in each color. The measurements are performed with highest precision and in harsh ambient conditions that are partly due to glass dust and powder. The measurement system operates with high speed and provides the measurement values in real time via EtherCAT.

One-sided thickness measurement of container glass

Combining speed and a large temperature measuring range, the new thermoIMAGER TIM G7 is an industrial thermal imaging camera specially designed for applications in the glass industry. The spectral range of 7.9µm enables reliable measurements even on thin glass sheets without unwanted transmission loss. The new VGA model offers a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels.

New: thermoIMAGER TIM with VGA resolution

The optoNCDT 1420 is by now also available with a measuring range of 500mm. It is therefore the smallest laser sensor in the market that offers such a large measuring range combined with high measurement accuracy. This smart laser sensor is suitable for logistics, warehouse automation and robotics.

One of a kind: compact laser sensor with 500mm measuring range

Instead of a red laser line, the Blue Laser diode generates a blue-violet laser beam with a wavelength of 405nm. The sharper focus enables a sharper projection of the laser beam and therefore increased accuracy. In numerous measurement tasks, the technology patented by Micro-Epsilon offers decisive advantages compared to red-diode laser sensors.

Innovative Blue Laser Technology with Patent

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.

New software: scanCONTROL 3D-View 3.0

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.

Capacitive capaNCDT 6112 measurement system: compact and dynamic

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.

The optoNCDT 1420 laser triangulation sensors are now also available with laser class 1. With this laser class, the radiated power is at a maximum of 390µW, which is far lower than the radiated power of laser class 2 sensors. Therefore, costly protective measures are no longer necessary.
