The new thicknessSENSOR is used for non-contact thickness measurement of strip and plate material such as metals and plastics. Due to its extremely compact size, this turnkey sensor system can also be easily integrated into restricted installation spaces. Using laser-optical thickness measurement, the system measures the material surface from above and below. The difference principle applied enables material thickness to be determined. An evaluation unit integrated in the frame calculates the analog thickness values via tension and current or digitally via Ethernet.
This new entry-level sensor class enables high precision thickness measurements accompanied by an unmatched price/performance ratio. The intuitive web interface provides the new thicknessSENSOR with unique ease of use and enables the user to load individual presets for the respective measurement task. Up to eight user-specific sensor settings can be stored and exported in the setup management feature. The measurement task can be optimized using signal peak selection and freely adjustable signal averaging.
