Integrable Metrology 3D Sensors - S neox

The S neox fulfills the need for utmost flexibility in an integrable sensor and is, therefore, the most versatile industrial system that is commercially available.

  • FOV (single shot) > 6.7 × 5.6 mm
  • Acquisition time 3 s
  • Optical resolution < 148 nm
  • System noise < 0.01 nm

Extreme Versatility with High Performance

The S neox pushes versatility to the extreme: with 4-in-1 technology, offering unprecedented adaptability for shifty application needs and the best measurement flexibility on any surface.

The re-design of a few algorithms has helped increase the capability and speed of all technologies. Therefore, the option to add a piezoelectric Z motor makes the S neox the main performer. The S neox covers thicknesses measurements ranging from 50 nm to 5 mm.

1 Maximum field of view with 3/2” camera and 0.5X optics. 2 Pixel size on the surface. 3 L&S: Line and Space, half of the diffraction limit according to the Rayleigh criterion. Spatial sampling could limit the optical resolution for interferometric objectives. Values for blue LED. 4 System noise measured as the difference between two consecutive measures on a calibration mirror placed perpendicular to the optical axis. For interferometry objectives, PSI, 10 phase averages. The 0.01 nm are achieved with Piezo stage scanner and temperature-controlled room. Values for green LED (white LED for CSI). Values obtained in a VC-E vibration environment. 5 On smooth surfaces. Up to 86° on rough surfaces.
