New optical sensor solutions
For tomorrow’s industrial production, the following characteristics are key: miniaturization, ease of integration, compatibility, scalability and high performance - with more precision. Our new interferometers provide unprecedented accuracy in industrial distance and thickness measurements. With our high-resolution confocal chromatic sensors, we also present a new product. They impress with their high performance and an excellent price-performance ratio for series applications.
Powerful sensors for the interferometer series
We developed three new sensors for high-precision distance measurements in special environments. These sensors and their cables are highly particle-free and can be used in both cleanroom and vacuum environments. They provide results in the subnanometer range and are available in different versions: interferoMETER IMP-DS0.5/90/VAC for 90° measurements in bore holes and small installation spaces, interferoMETER IMP-DS19/VAC(001) for use in ultra-high vacuum with high temperature stability, and interferoMETER IMP-DS1/VAC as a miniature distance sensor with a diameter of only 4 mm.
The next generation of confocal sensors for series integration
The confocalDT IFD2410 and IFD2415 compact confocal sensors represent a new generation of sensors. These compact sensor systems have an integrated controller, which significantly simplifies installation. Several measuring ranges and accuracy classes open up a wide range of measurement tasks, e.g., for series use in coordinate measuring machines, for inline thickness monitoring of flat glass and for testing electronic components. With measuring rates up to 25 kHz, even dynamic measurements can be performed reliably.
Compact confocal sensor system for industrial series applications
The new confocalDT 2411 compact controller offers maximum application flexibility for industrial measurement tasks - both for distance and thickness measurements of transparent objects. The controller enables a resolution of < 2 nm and achieves a measuring rate of 8 kHz. The confocalDT 2411 is supplied as a complete channel and is factory-calibrated to sensors with measuring ranges of 1, 2, 3 or 6 mm. All confocal sensors from Micro-Epsilon can be used for series applications. This opens up numerous possible applications, such as in machine building and in glass and smartphone production.
Precise laser scanners with increased performance
The scanCONTROL 3000 laser scanners are used for precise inline measurements in numerous applications. The performance of the laser scanners has been further increased through targeted optimization. Improved algorithms and components increase data acquisition and output up to 10 million measurement points per second. The profile calculation and evaluation speed for smart sensors is increased by up to 60%, which means that dynamic profile evaluations can be performed even more efficiently in the controller.
Smart, fast and powerful laser sensors with integrated fieldbuses
The compact optoNCDT 1900 laser sensors have an integrated high-performance controller with EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP and PROFINET interfaces. The integrated Industrial Ethernet interfaces offer numerous advantages for the user when networking multiple devices and machines. The innovative optoNCDT 1900 laser triangulation sensor is used whenever maximum precision is combined with the latest technology - in robotics as well as in 3D printers, coordinate measuring machines and battery and smartphone production.
Robust laser distance sensors for outdoor use
The new optoNCDT ILR1171-125 laser distance sensor is used for distance measurements up to 270 m and particularly impresses in outdoor measurements. With its high signal intensity, the robust laser sensor provides precise results even in fog and rain. The high temperature stability allows applications at temperatures from -40 °C to +60 °C. Due to its compact dimensions, the sensor can also be integrated into confined installation spaces.
