Next-generation laser sensors
The optoNCDT 1900 is the latest model of Micro-Epsilon laser sensors. This innovative sensor is used for dynamic displacement, distance and position measurements and impresses with high speed, design and accuracy. The integrated high-performance controller enables fast and highly precise processing and output of measurement values. The innovative optoNCDT 1900 laser triangulation sensor is used whenever maximum precision is combined with the latest technology, e.g., in Advanced Automation, the automotive industry, 3D printing and coordinate measuring machines.
NEW: Now with integrated EtherCAT interface!
The latest optoNCDT 1900 sensor generation is now even smarter - thanks to the integrated EtherCAT interface, you integrate the full sensor performance directly into your PLC. You benefit from real-time data without time delay and reduced installation effort. You can load the optoNCDT 1900 as usual in Ethernet mode and make the settings via the intuitive web interface. After rebooting in EtherCAT mode, the settings are automatically applied to the TwinCAT software. Time-consuming setting directly in TwinCAT is no longer necessary. For very fast measurements, an oversampling function can be activated in the sensor. This allows measurement data to be transferred four times faster than the cycle time of the PLC (up to max. 10 kHz).
Optimized for thickness measurements of electrode coating
The optoNCDT 1900 laser sensors are now also available with a measuring range of 6 mm. Its laser-line beam design makes this sensor ideally suitable for inline thickness measurements in battery cell production. The electrode coating is a dried paste (the so-called slurry), which is applied on both sides of an aluminum film (for the cathode) or on a copper film (for the anode). Subsequent drying and calendering forms a partially very porous surface. Specially designed for measurements on rough surfaces, the small laser line is ideal for this application since it compensates for surface irregularities. The thickness values of the coated film obtained in this way are used for quality assurance.
Both its high accuracy and its very compact size make the optoNCDT 1900 ideally suitable for this type of measurement tasks.
Highest stability based on intelligent signal optimization
For the first time, a two-step measurement value averaging is available to optimize the signal. This enables a smooth signal at edges and steps. Especially for high speed measurements of moving parts, the high-performance averaging enables a precise signal course.
Advanced Surface Compensation - The intelligent exposure control for demanding surfaces
The optoNCDT 1900 is equipped with an intelligent surface control feature. New algorithms enable stable measurement results even on demanding surfaces presenting changing reflections. In addition, the sensor is extremely resistant to ambient light and can also be used in strongly illuminated environments. New algorithms compensate for ambient light up to 50,000 lux.
Simple installation and initial operation
Mounting the sensor using fitting sleeves automatically aligns the sensor in the correct position. This enables both easy sensor replacement and even higher precision in solving measurement tasks. Thanks to its small dimensions, the laser sensor can also be integrated in confined spaces.
Modern interfaces for integration into machines and systems
The laser sensor is equipped with an RS422 interface and analog outputs. The Micro-Epsilon interface modules also offer EtherNet/IP and PROFINET.
Mounting bracket for quick installation
For ergonomic support and positioning the sensor into flexible position, you can purchase a Pop-Link® mounting bracket. The bracket is adapted to the optoNCDT 1900 sensor and provides an extremely versatile, low-cost, effective solutions for mounting the laser sensor.
