Blue Laser sensors in the optoNCDT 1750BL series available from Hoskin Scientific are designed for high speed displacement, distance and position measurements.
The sensors are equipped with new high performance lenses, laser control and evaluation algorithms to ensure precise measurements on different surfaces and materials, Hoskin Scientific says.
The Blue Laser technology patented by Micro-Epsilon offers decisive advantages compared to red-diode laser sensors. Since the blue laser point does not penetrate the surface, the target is sharply imaged onto the sensor element.
This is said to make it possible to achieve high resolution and reliable signal stability. Measuring ranges are 20, 200, 500 and 750 mm at a maximum linearity of 12 µm and maximum repeatability of 8 µm. Output can be either analog or digital.
