Micro-Epsilon’s new high-end laser triangulation sensor is known as the optoNCDT 2300. The new series offers a measuring rate that can be set up to 50kHz. The sensor will be offered initially as a set of 5 models with measuring ranges between 2mm and 100mm. The entire electronics is integrated in the extremely compact (80mm x 75mm) sensor. The optoNCDT 2300 offers a resolution of up to 0.1µm and a linearity of up to + 0.4µm. The new A-RTSC (Advanced Real Time Surface Compensation) feature is a development of the company’s already proven RTSC technology and, with its improved dynamic range, enables a more precise real time surface compensation during the measuring process. This works by adjusting the automatic exposure regulation to customer requirements to an even greater extent than before. Data output is via Ethernet, RS422 or EtherCAT (2nd Quarter 2010). The entire sensor configuration is made possible by means of an ergonomically designed Web interface. With transparent objects, the change from displacement measurement to thickness measurement can also be made. A sensor records the first and second reflection from the target surface. This means there is no need for a second sensor during the process monitoring of transparent plastics.
The optoNCDT 2300 is used for extremely high speed applications. The sensor can be used to monitor vibrations or on difficult, uneven surfaces
