AMETEK Solartron Metrology Orbit® LTH networks

Solartron Metrology

AMETEK, United Kingdom, Solartron Metrology Orbit® LTH networks with up to 150 other devices through Orbit 3 system. A non-contact laser for fast, high-performance gauging has been introduced by AMETEK Solartron Metrology ( The new Orbit® LTH laser triangulation unit delivers 0.02 F.S. (full scale) reading over 2 or 10 mm measurement ranges. This yields accuracy up to .05 µm with the 2 mm stroke. The laser can be networked with as many as 150 different sensors by connecting to Solartron’s Orbit 3 digital measurement system.

Applications include high-volume gauging for quality control of metal and plastic products that could be damaged by contact measurement instruments. 

The sensor’s auto-gain circuitry adjusts power based on feedback from the material, providing better readings on difficult surfaces. It can switch between diffuse and specular modes to measure reflective and non-reflective materials. A bridging function can be programmed to account for drop-offs in materials with gaps or holes.

Multiple outputs are available, including USB, Ethernet, TCP, RS232 and Modbus.
