The new laser sensors optoNCDT 2300 offer a measuring rate of almost 50kHz and therefore define the new upper performance class of laser triangulation. Particularly in application with fast moving parts, vibrations or challenging surfaces the sensor shows its benefits. The size of the sensor housing of only 80x75mm contains all the electronics. The measured value output is effected via Ethernet, RS422 or EtherCAT. A newly developed surface compensation called “Advanced Real-Time-Surface-Compensation” takes control in the case of changing surface reflective characteristics of the measuring object.
The complete sensor configuration is effected by an intuitive designed web-based user interface via an Ethernet connection. Besides the distance measurement in high precision, the sensor can be used for the thickness measurement of transparent objects. Here, configuration has to be changed to thickness measuring mode. The electronics evaluates the reflective values of the upper and lower surface and calculates a thickness value. For the time being the optoNCDT 2300 is available with five different measuring ranges. Additional sensors are being developed.
