The steel industry demands accurate measuring equipment to be used under difficult environments. It can be harsh with high dust and hot temperatures. The hot metal targets can be especially difficult because they radiate glowing light at high temperatures.
Acuity offers AR600 series laser displacement sensor for steel industry which is designed to measure to glowing targets. Most sensors used within this industry are equipped with the AR600’s optional filter and high power laser option.
Dimensions are captured with either single or multiple sensors. Thickness measurements are achieved with the use of two opposing sensors and a standard, PC computer.
The AR600 series laser displacement sensors are often protected behind insulating glass or within a protective enclosure. Acuity offers customised enclosures for the AR600 sensors.
These enclosures can be either air or water cooled so that the sensor can be placed close to hot surface targets.
The AR600 is a triangulating laser displacement sensor. The AR600 series laser displacement sensor employs CMOS line cameras for high sensitivity on wood, glowing steel, liquid surfaces and other targets.
The AR600 series measuring sensors are self-contained and require no external controller or specialized PC card.
Some important features of AR600 series laser distance sensors are:
- Range - 3mm to 1270mm
- Linearity - ±0.1%
- Resolution - 0.01% of full scale span
- Output - Serial RS232C or analog
The AR600 laser displacement sensor is available in Australia and New Zealand from Bestech Australia .
