Thermal Imagers

October 10, 2014 1:33 pm | Micro Epsilon America | Products

Powered from just one USB cable, the system is truly plug and play. Data is streaming from the camera to the software via USB 2.0. in real time. This process and analysis tool, provided with every camera, enables the user to capture, record and monitor real time thermal process images at 128Hz. The software will store the data to a file, which allows playback at user defined speeds, e.g. in slow motion, frame by frame if required. The image can be viewed and monitored either online with the camera connected, or off line at a later time without the camera being connected.

Optical Micrometers and Fibre Optic Sensors

September 12, 2014 11:18 am | Micro Epsilon America | Products

Optical Micrometers to measure diameter, gap, edge or opacity. Fiber optic sensors for gap, diameter, edge and presence. Fiber optic sensors are simple sensors for determining dimensional quantities such as gaps or edges. The sensors are constructed like conventional light barriers but they are clearly superior. Measurement is made directly on the object using fiber optics. High resolution optical micrometer with fixed optic: optoCONTROL ODC systems are laser / LED based measuring systems with integrated high resolution CMOS or CCD camera for geometrical measurements.

Laser Line Profile Sensor

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

The scanCONTROL laser-line profile sensor makes use of the triangulation principle for the two-dimensional acquisition of profiles on the most varied of target surfaces. In contrast to familiar point laser sensors, a line optical system projects a laser line onto the surface of the object to be measured. The back-scattered light from the laser line is registered on a sensor matrix. Along with distance information (z-axis), the controller also calculates the true position along the laser line (x-axis) from the camera image and outputs both values in the sensor two-dimensional coordinate system. A moving object or sensor will generate a three-dimensional representation of the object.

Draw Wire Sensors

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