The AR600 series laser displacement sensors available from Bestech Australia are high accuracy measuring devices for industrial application. Models vary in measuring range from 3mm to more than a meter and can achieve resolution better than 1.0 micron. The AccuRange 600 models find many applications in the timber industry.
The AR600 series is commonly integrated into automated lumber finishing machines to measure board position, board dimensions and surface profiles. The AR600 series is ideal for wood of varying colours and textures.
The AR600 series employs CMOS line cameras for high sensitivity on timber. The long-distance AR600 laser triangulation sensors offer a valuable stand-off distance, keeping the measuring equipment away from the quickly moving lumber and potential hazards.
The multiple long-range AR600 laser measuring sensors can be used to take profiles and thicknesses of the wood boards. The sensor projects a beam of visible light that creates a spot on the target surface.
Reflected light from the surface is viewed from an angle by a line scan camera inside the sensor. The forest products industry is a regular user of Acuity laser sensor products for the measurement of logs, lumber, veneer, paperboard, timber etc. These sensors are self contained and require no external controller or specialized PC card and easy to use.
The AR600 series is distributed by Bestech Australia in Australia and New Zealand.
