2D/3D laser profile sensors now offer larger measuring fields

2D/3D laser profile sensors now offer larger measuring fields

Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has extended its scanCONTROL 30xx range of laser profile sensors (laser scanners) with two larger measuring fields now available. In addition to the existing 25 mm and 50 mm models, there are now 100 mm and 200 mm versions available offering measuring fields of up to 170 mm x 131 mm and 300 mm x

290 mm respectively.

The company says the larger measuring fields open up greater opportunities for 2D/3D profile measurements in a wide variety of industrial applications including automation, robotics, machine building, quality control, production and process monitoring.

In addition, Micro-Epsilon has also introduced a new streamlined feature version of the scanCONTROL 3000 with the scanCONTROL 30x2 series. Based on the same next-generation platform and available also with the new larger measuring fields, the sensor has a compact housing with integrated controller, allowing fast integration into confined spaces. The scanCONTROL 30x2 sensor matrix offers a resolution of 1,024 points across the profile line and a maximum profile frequency of 5kHz providing calibrated profile data with up to 5.12 million points per second.

The scanCONTROL 30x2 model is targeted at OEM customers and system integrators, whilst the high end scanCONTROL 3000 continues to offer the highest accuracy and versatility.

The scanCONTROL 3000 and 30x2 models are available in COMPACT or SMART versions, with either red or blue laser technology. The COMPACT scanners provide calibrated profile data that can be further processed on a PC with software evaluation provided by the user. SMART scanners operate autonomously and provide selected measurement values where they can measure and evaluate profile width, height, depth, edges, beads, angles, steps, gaps and roundness.
