confocalDT IFC2471 HS

Micro-Epsilon confocalDT IFC2471 HS Confocal Chromatic Measuring Controller with Measuring Rates up to 70kHz for Fast Distance & Thickness Measurements of Highly Reflecting Shiny Surfaces

SKU: confocalDT IFC2471 HS Category:

The Micro-Epsilon confocalDT 2471 HS controllers are used for fast distance and thickness measurements of highly reflecting and specular surfaces. The controllers are equipped with enhanced optical components enabling measuring rates up to 70 kHz on reflecting surfaces without having to use an external light source. The confocalDT HS controllers are one of the fastest confocal measuring systems in the world. The active exposure regulation feature in the CCD line enables accurate, fast surface compensation on changing surfaces during dynamic measurement processes. The controller can be operated with any IFS sensor and is available as a standard version for distance and thickness measurements or as a multi-peak version for multi-layer measurements. Due to a user-friendly web no additional software is necessary to configurethe controller and the sensors. Data output is via Ethernet, EtherCAT, RS422 or analog output.
