Micro-Epsilon news

Temperature is one of the critical factors that affect measurement results. In order to eliminate the influence of temperature fluctuations, sensors from Micro-Epsilon are actively temperature-compensated. With conventional sensors, these effects are often not mentioned in the datasheet, as these sensors are not actively compensated and therefore provide insufficient measurement results in the case of temperature changes.

Magneto-inductive displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon are versatile in terms of their installation options and are increasingly replacing inductive sensors, switches and Hall Effect sensors, particularly where these types of sensors are operating at their limits. The mainSENSOR from Micro-Epsilon provides a linear output signal and can be immersed in non-ferromagnetic objects, flush mounted or protruding without influencing the measurement accuracy.

Two become one - this accurately describes the mainSENSOR developed by Micro-Epsilon. It makes use of the magnetic and inductive sensor technologies and combines the advantages of both techniques. The mainSENSOR is predestined for industrial displacement and position measurement tasks where large measuring ranges at low cost and high volumes are required.

The new scanCONTROL 29xx-10/BL laser profile scanner shows its strengths in applications where extremely high resolution and precision are required. The 10mm laser line enables a high x resolution with 1280 points. The blue laser line used is focused significantly sharper as the light does not penetrate into the measurement object. Therefore, scanCONTROL 29xx-10/BL measures very small objects with absolute precision and has a leading position in its class.

Functional and optically perfect - these are two important requirements placed on airbag stitching. During the production process itself, these stitches are inspected using a scanCONTROL 2910-25 laser profile scanner. The distance between the stitching and the separating point between single components, as well as the height difference between both components are detected which, in contrary to the camera technology, functions independently from the color and brightness differences.

The scanCONTROL Configuration Tools software enables the set up and configuration of the SMART laser profile scanners. The latest version 4.2 now provides a number of new features for users, including the ability to freely rotate and position profile views. Furthermore, measurement results can be connected logically to one another, enabling the simultaneous evaluation of different sizes. At the end, an individual IO or NIO signal can be directly transferred to the control system.

The optoNCDT 1320 and 1420 laser triangulation sensors from Micro-Epsilon are a new generation of laser-optical smart sensors. The ultra compact design with integrated controller means the sensors are suitable for a variety of measurement tasks that require easy integration and high precision. In this sensor class, the operating concept is new and is carried out using function keys or the web interface.

Quality and taste of potato crisps depend to a significant degree on the thickness of the potato slices used. With too thick slices, a soft core remains. However, if the slices are too thin, they can burn. The scanCONTROL 2950-50/BL laser scanner with blue laser diode inspects the slices directly after cutting which enables to eliminate defects early and not only during the final quality control check.

Five inductive measuring principles offer a wide range of applications in industrial displacement and position measurement. The basic models can be individually adapted to the measurement task, which over the years has proven to be cost effective for medium volume applications.

Providing resolutions far below one nanometre, capacitive sensors are regarded as one of the most precise measurement systems. The capacitive measuring principle is particularly attractive due to its versatility. As well as electrically conductive objects such as metal, graphite or water, non-conductive objects can also be measured. Typical measured quantities include displacement, distance, position and thickness.
