Laser Measurement (Triangulation & Distance) Sensor

optoNCDT 1420

Micro-Epsilon optoNCDT 1420 Compact Triangulation Laser Displacement to Measure, Distance, & Position Sensor for OEM Applications with 10|25|50|100|200|500 mm Measurement Ranges & 4kHz Measuring Rate

The optoNCDT 1420 offers a unique combination of speed, size, performance and application versatility in the class of compact triangulation sensors. The sensor with integrated controller is used in restricted installation space or dynamic applications. The selectable connector type, i.e. cable or pigtail, together with compact size reduce the sensor installation effort to a minimum. The Auto Surface Compensation (ASC) provides stable distance signal control. The high-performance optical system projects the small light spot sharply onto the measurement object which enables to even detect smallest components and every little detail reliably.The triangulation sensor achieves a high measurement accuracy with measuring rates of up to 4 kHz.Commissioning is quick and easy via predefined presets or the web interface.
