Numerous applications can be solved using different sensor models. As well as standard sensors for high precision measurement tasks, miniature sensors with axial and radial measurement directions are also available. The sensors have a passive design and so do not radiate any heat onto the target, which enables them, depending on the model, to be used in different environments e.g. in a vacuum or hazardous (Ex) areas.
confocalDT IFS 2402 confocal displacement sensors are especially suitable for high precision applications in restricted installation spaces. These miniature, confocal chromatic sensors with only 4 mm outer diameter and stainless steel case are used within narrow cavities or drill holes. A particular advantage is the sensor model with radial beam path enabling the detection of walls and structures.
The confocal chromatic confocalDT IFS 2403 measurement sensor combines the benefits of two successful confocal design concepts. With an external diameter of 8mm, this sensor is as compact as the confocalDT IFS 2402 miniature sensor series. However, due to its larger digital aperture, it can receive significantly more reflected light than the smaller 4mm diameter version. These sensors are also available as radial or axial model.
confocalDT IFS 2405 are confocal displacement sensors for extremely precise applications. These confocal chromatic sensors offer large offset distances and tolerate tiltings. They are used for common measurement tasks and are in addition suitable for one-sided thickness measurement of transparent materials.
The confocal IFS2406 series stands out due to its compact design and high precision. As well as distance measurements on reflecting or transparent surfaces, the sensor can also be applied in one-sided thickness measurement of transparent film, plates or layers. Due to its axial and radial measuring directions, the IFS2406-2,5 sensors are suitable for vacuum applications and extremely versatile in terms of its use.
The confocal chromatic confocalDT IFS2407/90-0,3 90° sensor is designed for precision displacement and surface roughness measurements. The sensor is equipped with a 90° lens and is therefore ideally suited to installation in restricted spaces. The lens in the sensor generates a small measurement spot size, which enables a high spatial resolution. The small measurement spot size combined with a large tilt angle and large offset distance enable roughness measurements where maximum precision is required.
