Compact laser profile sensors with integrated controller
High-resolution 3D scan
Precise measurement on different surfaces
Laser scanner for gap measurement
Blue Laser scanner for difficult surfaces
Laser line sensors from Micro-Epsilon are among the highest performing profile sensors in the world with respect to accuracy and measuring rate. They detect, measure and evaluate profiles on different object surfaces. The available models are suitable for numerous industrial applications. The integrated intelligence in their sensor head (scanCONTROL SMART and gapCONTROL) solves versatile measurement tasks. Models for the customer’s own programming are available for integrators. The scanCONTROL and gapCONTROL sensors do not require any external controller.
Micro-Epsilon laser line sensors (also called laser scanners or profile scanners) are available in different classes (Compact, Highspeed, Smart, gapCONTROL) in order to meet the different user requirements. Furthermore, the user can choose between three perfectly matched product series (26xx, 27xx und 29xx):
The sensors can be easily integrated into an existing customer software either via the available SDKs or the GigE Vision Standard which all scanCONTROL sensors meet (integration into image processing software). The sensors of the scanCONTROL SMART or gapCONTROL classes can directly transfer the measured values to the control systems using the following interfaces:
Compact size combined with low weight opens up new fields of application in profile measurement. The controllers of the scanCONTROL profile sensors being integrated in the housing simplify cabling arrangements and mechanical integration. Due to their compact size and their high profile frequency, the laser profile sensors are ideally suited to dynamic measurement tasks, e.g. in the production control or for robot mounting processes.
Laser scanners with blue laser line are preferably used for profile measurement with organic and transparent objects, as well as for red-hot glowing metals. While allowing higher stability, the blue laser light does not penetrate the measurement object due to the shorter wavelength of the blue-violet laser. Compared to red lasers, blue laser sensors enable more reliable measurements on red-hot glowing and organic objects.
The latest scanCONTROL model provides a laser line of just 10mm. Due to its high-focused, blue laser line, finest details can be reproduced with high resolution. The high profile resolution allows for maximum precision destined for versatile applications, e.g. in the electronics production.
