While conventional pyrometers operate at their limits in the metals industry when surrounded by dust, smoke or vapors, the new thermoMETER CTRatio glass fiber ratio pyrometer provides precise measurement values. It is used for industrial temperature measurements from +250 °C to +3000 °C. The short response time of 1 ms enables the monitoring of high speed processes. The robust glass fiber ratio pyrometer can be used in ambient temperatures up to 200 °C without requiring any cooling. A high temperature version for ambient temperatures up to 315 °C is also available.

The mainSENSOR measuring principle developed by Micro-Epsilon combines the advantages of both inductive sensors and magnetic sensors. These sensors offer a reliable and durable sensor solution for displacement, distance and rotational speed measurements. The sensors are frequently used as alternatives to inductive sensors and proximity sensors in process automation, packaging and in machine monitoring. Due to their favorable price/performance ratio, the sensors are particularly well suited to serial applications.

Confocal sensors precisely determine distances on different surfaces and measure the thickness of transparent materials with the highest precision. Micro-Epsilon has extended its product range with two new sensors that open up multiple new application areas. Due to its high tilt angle, the confocalDT IFS2407-3 is particularly designed for curved surfaces. The IFS2404/90-2 is designed for restricted installation spaces, primarily for serial applications. The 90° lens enables space-saving installation into plant and machines.

If hotspots in automation, machine building and plant monitoring are recognized automatically, both effective and reliable process control is possible. The intelligent thermoMETER TIM 8 pyrometer offers this automatic spot finder function. In standalone operation, hot and cold spots are detected with an excellent spatial resolution and very small measurement spot size. The direct analog output makes the pyrometer suitable for OEM applications. Temperature measurements are possible between -20 °C and 900 °C.

The O- and C-frame systems of the thicknessCONTROL series operate with innovative laser line scanners that offer two measuring ranges. With a material thickness of 400 mm, these systems achieve 10 times higher accuracy than conventional X-ray devices. Furthermore, the systems are easier to use since they do not require any recalibration with changing alloys, unlike X-ray devices.

Blue Laser displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon solve measurement tasks on demanding surfaces. For example, optoNCDT 1750BL Blue Laser sensors measure the damp paper pulp of quality paper during the production process. This makes it possible to now measure the product when the paper pulp becomes a solid paper web. This saves material and money. In addition to the paper industry, the optoNCDT 1750BL laser triangulation sensor is used in the metals, ceramics, semiconductor, food and wood industries as well as in medical technology.

Extremely compact, high resolution and high speed - with these characteristics, the new thermoIMAGER TIM QVGA infrared camera is ideally suited to reliable monitoring of industrial processes. The camera is 40% smaller than its predecessor which therefore enables even easier integration in industrial processes such as monitoring tasks in 3D printing. With a resolution of 382 x 288 pixels and a frame rate up to 80 Hz, it dynamically monitors temperature ranges from -20 °C to +900 °C reliably. For temperatures up to 1500 °C, a special model is available.

Whether it is shiny metallic, structured or very fine white graduations - they have all one thing in common: measuring the color of these surfaces is challenging. Micro-Epsilon has developed the new CFS2 circular sensors that are adapted to the high requirements of demanding surfaces. They operate using the CFO controller. These circular sensors illuminate the measurement object in a uniform manner and therefore offer measurement results that are even more stable with higher color accuracy. Fields of application are color recognition of wine labels, coloring of textiles or inspection of components with metallic paints.
