Sensor takes a shine to tricky surfaces

Sensor takes a shine to tricky surfaces Micro-Epsilon has developed a unique optoelectronic displacement measurement sensor which is self-contained and has no external electronics. With no separate controller to mount, machine builders and system integrators can reduce the costs associated with wiring the sensors and free up space in their control cabinets. Plus there are other benefits too. The optoNCDT 1700 sensor has an integral controller that automatically compensates in real time for difficult-to-measure surfaces such as shiny metal, gloss paint finishes and black rubber. This enables industrial automation and OEM production companies to more accurately measure and monitor a variety of object parameters, including thickness, roundness, position, deflection, tilt, displacement and vibration. The optoNCDT 1700 operates using the laser triangulation principle. A laser diode projects a visible point of light onto the surface of the target object. The light reflected from this point is then projected onto a CCD array. If the target changes position with respect to the sensor, the movement of the reflected light is projected on the CCD array and analysed to output the exact position of the target. The measurements are processed digitally in the integral controller.
