The new thicknessSENSOR from Micro-Epsilon opens up even more diverse application possibilities in terms of non-contact thickness measurement. The sensor works extremely precisely combined with ease of use and a compact design, measuring without contact and therefore wear-free.
The fully assembled system enables easy integration without requiring any complex sensor alignment. Due to its compact design, the system can also be easily implemented in a confined installation space. This new entry-level sensor class enables high precision thickness measurements accompanied by an unmatched price/performance ratio. The thicknessSENSOR is used for thickness measurement of strip and plate material such as metals and films. The material thickness is detected according to the difference principle. Two laser triangulation sensors are fixed opposite to each other on a stable frame and measure against the material surface without making contact. The evaluation unit integrated into the frame calculates the thickness values and outputs these via different interfaces.
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 the video signal display, signal peak selection and freely adjustable signal averaging.
