The optoNCDT 2300-2DR laser sensor is especially suitable for reflective and shiny targets. The sensor is for example used in thickness measurements of flat glass, distance measurements on annealed glass and assembly monitoring of extremely small parts. With a measuring rate up to 49kHz, the sensor is ideally suitable for process monitoring tasks. While operating with the Advanced Real-Time-Surface-Compensation (A-RTSC), the sensor enables a precise real-time surface compensation of different surface types. Data output is via Ethernet, RS422 or EtherCAT. If the sensor is operated with the C-Box/2A signal processing unit, an analog output is also available.
The design of the new laser sensor is based on a parallel installation to the measurement object. The blue laser light is directly reflected onto the receiving optics by the measurement object. Unlike red laser light, the blue laser light does not penetrate the measurement object. A sharp point is projected onto the surface, which enables a stable signal on the receiver element. Therefore, the sensor is able to measure to nanometer resolution. In addition, the extremely small laser spot size allows the sensor to detect very small objects. In addition to its high precision sensor technology, the size of the sensor makes the new optoNCDT 2300-2DR unique. In this sensor class, it is the only laser sensor worldwide for directly reflective surfaces whose entire electronics is integrated in a compact housing.
