Micro-Epsilon confocalDT IFC2451 Confocal Chromatic Measuring Controller for Measuring Rates up to 10kHz for Distance and Multi-Layer Thickness

SKU: confocalDT IFC2451 Category:

The Micro-Epsilon universal confocalDT IFC2451 controllers are used for various industrial measurement tasks. Due to their excellent signal-to-noise ratio, these controllers achieve measuring rates of 10 kHz with white light LEDs. The active exposure regulation feature in the CCD line enables accurate, fast surface compensation on changing surfaces during dynamic measurement processes. Due to a user-friendly web interface, no additional software is necessary to configure the controller and the sensors. Data output is via Ethernet, EtherCAT, RS422 or analog output. The confocalDT controllers are used for complex distance and thickness measurements and can be combined with any IFS sensor. Furthermore, up to 6 peaks are provided which allows for the thickness of transparent, multi-layer objects to be measured. Optical signals are transferred between sensor and controller via optical fibers.
