Draw Wire Sensors

September 12, 2014 11:07 am | Micro Epsilon | Products

Draw-wire displacement and position sensors are essentially electronic tape measures and measure the linear movement of a component by means of a wire made of highly-flexible stainless steel strands, which is wound onto a drum by a long-life spring motor. The measuring drum is axially coupled with a multi-turn potentiometer, an incremental encoder, or an absolute encoder. With the draw-wire principle a linear movement is transformed into a rotary movement and then converted into a resistance change or into countable increments. Advantages - Very accurate - Long measuring ranges - Robust and compact - Easy installation and handling - Compact design - Excellent price/performance ratio

Confocal Chromatic Sensors

September 12, 2014 11:05 am | Micro Epsilon | Products

The confocal-chromatic measurement system, confocalDT, consists of a controller with a LED-light source and a sensor. Both, the sensor and the controller are connected via optical fiber up to 50 m. The distance of the focal point varies due to the chromatic aberration of the sensor optic. A certain distance is assigned to each wavelength in the controller. The reflected light from the target surface is passed to the receiver optics, where the spectral intensity dispersion is evaluated. This unique measuring principle enables displacements and distances to be measured with the highest precision.

Laser Triangulation Displacement Sensors

September 12, 2014 10:59 am | Micro Epsilon | Products

The non-contact displacement optoNCDT product group uses optical triangulation as a measuring principle. A laser diode projects a visible spot of light onto the target surface (laser class 2). The light reflected from this spot is directed through an optical receiving system onto a position-sensitive element. Optical displacement sensors measure with a large reference distance and a very small measuring spot diameter. Nearly all models work with a high resolution CCD- or CMOS-line and a DSP. Advantages - Small targets through tiny spot size - Long measuring ranges - Large stand off - Extreme resolution - Excellent linearity - High measuring rate - Synchronization of multiple sensors - Measurement of any target
