The scanCONTROL laser profile sensors are divided into three classes: COMPACT, HIGHSPEED and SMART. The first two versions respectively transmit the raw profile to (»point cloud«) e.g. a downstream customer software (Software integration) whereas the SMART scanner series carries out the evaluation directly in the sensor head. The evaluation can be simple (e.g. when inspecting an adhesive bead) or achieve high complexity. Therefore, numerous industrial applications, e.g. welding, joining and installation processes can be saved.
In order to enable the customer flexible configuration possibilities for the SMART scanner, Micro-Epsilon developed a free, user-friendly software which can be installed on any number of computers. Different software features such as dynamic tracking and logic connection of several conditions provide maximum flexibility for difficult tasks.
The scanCONTROL Configuration Tools software now also includes special algorithms for gap measurements. All functions of the previously independent »gapCONTROL Setup Software« are integrated. This makes it possible to measure gaps with or without visible ground in a variety of ways. Values such as the center of the gap, gap width, height offset and flushness can be evaluated directly in the sensor.
