Highest precision with maximum speed: Providing a measuring rate of 70kHz, the confocalDT 2471 HS high speed controller is currently the worldwide fastest confocal chromatic controller without external light source. Due to its special measuring principle, it is used for fast displacement and distance measurements on diffuse and reflecting surfaces. With transparent objects, a multi-layer thickness measurement is possible. With the new confocalDT 2471 HS, variable application possibilities open up in different industries such as the semi-conductor industry, the glass industry, the medical engineering or the plastics processing.
The confocalDT 2471 HS is the fastest controller worldwide with integrated light source and offers more powerful measurement characteristics and enhanced optical components. The integrated light source is more durable, resulting in reduced maintenance and purchase costs. An active exposure time regulation feature allows different surface types to be compensated for quickly and precisely even with dynamic processes.
A standard version and a multi-peak version are available. The latter enables one-sided thickness measurement of transparent measurement objects with up to five layers. Materials are stored in an expandable materials database. Data output is via Ethernet, EtherCAT, RS422 or analog output. The configuration of the controller and the sensors is performed without additional software using a user-friendly web interface.
The confocalDT 2471 HS is compatible with all sensor types of the IFS series. Micro-Epsilon offers a comprehensive range of confocal sensors: from high precision sensors for measurements with maximum accuracy to miniature sensors of just 4.5mm, which enables to solve numerous applications reliably. The sensors are designed for passive measurements and do not need any electrical components. They do not give off heat, which makes them suitable for use in sensitive environments.
