The thicknessSENSOR offered by Micro Epsilon for laser-optical thickness measurement opens up further diverse application possibilities with regards to non-contact thickness measurement. The sensor functions with extremely high precision together with ease of use and a compact design. It is wear-free as it measures without contact.
The completely assembled system permits simple integration without any need for complex sensor alignments. The system’s compact design allows it to be effortlessly used in a confined installation space. This new entry-level sensor class offers high precision thickness measurements and also an unparalleled performance/price ratio.
The thicknessSENSOR has been employed for thickness measurement of plate and strip material such as metals and films. The thickness of the material is detected based on the difference principle. Two laser triangulation sensors are installed on a stable frame and are placed opposite to each other, and they further measure against the material surface without touching each other.
The evaluation unit is incorporated into the frame, and is capable of calculating the thickness values and output these via varied interfaces.
The intuitive web interface offers the thicknessSENSOR with unique ease of use, and enables the user to load separate presets for the corresponding measurement operation. The setup management feature has the potential to store and export up to eight user-specific sensor settings. The measurement operation can be improved with the help of video signal display, signal peak selection, and signal averaging that is freely adjustable.
The key features of the thicknessSENSOR are as follows:
- Compact system
- Precise measurement results with high dynamic
- Simple to operate and integrate
- Non-contact and wear-free measurement
- Instantly ready for use due to flawlessly harmonized components
The new thicknessSENSOR is used for precise thickness measurement of strip and plate material. This fully assembled system is made up of a stable frame on which two laser triangulation sensors are attached. These triangulation sensors are capable of detecting the material thickness based on the difference principle.
The evaluation unit is integrated into the frame, and is capable of calculating the thickness values and outputs these via different interfaces.
Compact Design and High Precision
The thicknessSENSOR has the potential to enable turnkey thickness measurement along with a supreme price/performance ratio. With its exceptionally compact design, it is also possible to fit this system into a confined installation space.
The two sensors are adjusted very well according to each other based on their mounting conditions, offering high measurement accuracy. A calibration target helps the sensors to be calibrated at any time.
Unique Ease of Use
The thicknessSENSOR is operated with the help of an intuitive web interface. The settings for the measurement task can be rapidly chosen by using predefined presets. Different set up and configuration possibilities allow the user to effortlessly adapt the sensor, for instance, to carry out dynamic measurements.
The setup management can store and export up to eight user-specific sensor settings. The easily adjustable signal averaging and a signal peak selection enable the experienced user to improve the measurement task.
