Extended measuring ranges create more application possibilities for new laser sensors
Using the new optoNCDT 1320 und 1420 laser triangulation sensors, displacement, distance and position are measured on a non-contact, wear-free basis. Now they can also be used in applications that require large measuring ranges. The optoNCDT 1320 is now available with a 100mm measuring range, the optoNCDT 1420 with additional ranges of 100mm and even 200mm.
The optoNCDT sensors provide high precision measurements along with a compact design, offering high performance across a wide variety of applications. As well as in the electronics production, these laser triangulation sensors are also applied in the packaging industry, wood processing, logistics, medical engineering, laser engraving equipment and machine building.
The innovative design and functionality of this sensor class have now been recognized with the Red Dot Award Industrial Design 2016. Furthermore, the sensors from Micro-Epsilon differ from conventional laser sensors due to their excellent price/performance ratio, an innovative web interface and their ease of use. The measurement task can be selected using the quality slider and can be further optimized using the video signal display, signal peak selection and individually adjustable signal averaging. The ROI function (region of interest) allows e.g. for interfering signals in the background to be filtered out. The multifunction button enables sensor commissioning for easy measurement tasks.
