Laser Measurement (Triangulation & Distance) Sensor


Micro-Epsilon thicknessSENSOR Turnkey Precise Thickness Measurements on Material Strips & Plates

The new thicknessSENSOR is a sensor system for precise thickness measurement of strip and plate material. This fully assembled system comprises a stable frame on which two laser triangulation sensors are fixed that detect the thickness of various materials according to the difference principle. The evaluation unit integrated into the frame calculates the thickness values and outputs these via different interfaces. The thicknessSENSOR is operated using an intuitive web interface. The settings for the measurement task can be quickly selected using predefined presets. Different configuration and set up possibilities enable the user to easily adapt the sensor e.g. to dynamic measurements and different materials. Up to eight user-specific sensor settings can be stored and exported in the setup management. The signal peak selection and a freely adjustable signal averaging enable the experienced user to optimize the measurement task.
