Distance Sensor Detects Glossy And Coarse Surfaces

Distance Sensor Detects Glossy And Coarse Surfaces
Baumer Ltd.

Targeting glossy and highly coarse surfaces, the multi-spot MESAX laser distance sensor is immediately ready-to-use and provides accurate and repeatable measurement results without elaborate conversion or external software. Its multi-spot measuring principle is based on the light section method. The sensor records up to 600 measured values of an object and the distance is then calculated on the basis of intelligent analysis. The sensor takes up to 500 distance measurements per second at a resolution of up to 2 µm (0.008% of the measuring range), providing stable measurement results even under varying ambient light conditions. Example applications include precise measurement of glossy objects in quality inspection or optimal positioning of grinding disks with extremely coarse surfaces.
