confocalDT IFD2411

Most compact confocal controller on the market

A class of its own: confocal measuring system for industrial series applications

The compact confocal IFD2411 measuring system is a factory-calibrated measuring system for industrial series applications. As well as displacement and distance measurements, the system enables even thickness measurements of transparent materials. The IFD2411 confocal chromatic measuring system is a complete channel which contains a controller and an adapted sensor with measuring ranges of 1 mm, 2 mm, 3 mm and 6 mm. This measuring system is ideal for series applications.

Now with integrated Industrial Ethernet interface

The confocal controller is now even smarter - thanks to the integrated Industrial Ethernet interface, you integrate the full sensor performance directly into your PLC. You benefit from real-time data without time delay and with reduced installation effort. In Ethernet mode, the IFD2411 can be set via the intuitive web interface. Industrial Ethernet ensures that the settings are automatically applied to the PLC environment. This eliminates time-consuming setting efforts in the programming environment.

Optimized for industrial series applications

Its compact design makes the IFD2411 ideal for OEM applications.

The entire configuration of the controller and the sensors is performed via an easy-to-use web interface.

Ease of use via web interface

Due to a user-friendly web interface, the entire configuration process is carried out without using any additional software. The web interface can be accessed via Ethernet and provides set up and configuration options. Materials are stored in an expandable materials database.
