High-resolution 2D/3D laser profile scanner for dynamic measurement tasks

scanCONTROL 30xx/BL laser scanners are designed for dynamic measurement tasks with high demands on resolution and accuracy. Available with measuring ranges of 25 and 50 mm (along the laser line/X axis), they are primarily used in automation tasks, production and process monitoring as well as quality control. The selectable High Dynamic Range mode (or HDR mode) additionally offers an innovative exposure control feature which enables precise results even on demanding surfaces.

scanCONTROL laser scanners are among the highest performing profile sensors in terms of their size, accuracy and measuring rate. These new scanCONTROL 30xx laser profile scanners with blue laser line are available with measuring ranges of 25 and 50 mm (along the laser line/X axis). They provide calibrated 2D profile data with about 5.5 million points per second and generate up to 2048 measuring points per profile. Here, the scanCONTROL 3060-25/BL models achieve an X resolution of about 12 µm. With a profile frequency up to 10 kHz, the new laser profile scanners are intended for high speed processes.

Thanks to the innovative High Dynamic Range mode, the sensor generates precise measurement results even on inhomogeneous surfaces. Output of the values determined is via Ethernet or RS422. Furthermore, the optional scanCONTROL Gateway enables to integrate these smart sensors in Profinet, EtherCAT or Ethernet/IP control systems.

The scanCONTROL 30xx/BL is a laser scanner based on the Blue Laser Technology, which offers decisive advantages in various measurement tasks compared to sensors with a red laser diode. Unlike the long-wave red laser, the short-wave, blue-violet laser light hardly penetrates the measurement object. Particularly with organic materials such as wood or semi-transparent objects such as adhesive beads or plastic profiles, this effect becomes visible. The laser scanner sharply images the blue laser line even onto these types of surfaces. The laser line is then projected onto the sensor element, which enables stable and precise measurement results.
