100 kHz true analogue laser displacement sensor

22 October 2013

Micro-Epsilon has extended its range of laser displacement devices with a new high speed true analogue laser sensor that is said to offer one of the fastest measuring rates of any laser displacement sensor currently available.

The sensors can be used in many environments, including production, R&D and test labs. Typical applications include impact/drop/crash tests; position control of engine pistons and valves; length, angle and thickness measurements; flatness control; checking dimensional accuracy of components; and vibration measurements.

The optoNCDT 1610/1630 measurement system comprises of a sensor and separate controller and a 2m connecting cable as standard. The controller is equipped with both analogue (current and voltage) and Ethernet interfaces.

There are 14 versions of the sensor available, with measuring ranges from 0.5mm up to 200mm.

The optoNCDT 1610 series measures at a frequency response rate of 10kHz and is available in measuring ranges from 0.5mm up to 200mm. Dynamic resolution is 0.06% to 0.1% full scale output (FSO). Maximum linearity is +/- 0.2%.

The optoNCDT 1630 operates at a frequency of up to 100kHz and is available in measuring ranges from 0.5mm up to 50mm. Dynamic resolution is 0.1% to 0.18% FSO. Maximum linearity is +/- 0.3%.

The sensor head is protected to IP64 (controller to IP40). However, for harsh environments a vareity of protective enclosures are available.
