Micro-Epsilon’s new optoNCDT 2300 laser displacement sensors are designed to measure the vibration of the target or its position, displacement or in some instances, thickness utilising the triangulated beam principle.
Offering a frequency response of up to 50 kHz, the new non-contact position sensors will soon be available in five full scale ranges from 2mm to 100mm. The resolution of the optoNCDT 2300 laser displacement sensors is from 0.1µm, and its non-linearity is from ±0.4µm.
Installation and set-up is simplified with all the electronics integrated in the compact 80mm x 75mm housing. The Micro-Epsilon optoNCDT 2300 laser displacement sensors feature the A-RTSC (Advanced Real Time Surface Compensation) technology for the first time.
An enhancement of the Micro-Epsilon’s existing RTSC technology, the feature combines with the 50 kHz frequency response to enable the optoNCDT 2300 to achieve the above specified precision and reliability. The output signal also remains precise when the optoNCDT 2300 is focussed on rough and irregular surfaced materials because of the 50 kHz frequency response.
When applied to transparent materials, the laser displacement sensors can be set up to measure the thickness of the target material, instead of the displacement or position without a second opposing sensor. The optoNCDT 2300 does this by recording and comparing the reflections from both surfaces of the transparent material.
Data output is via Ethernet, RS422 or EtherCAT and the sensor is configured using Micro-Epsilon software.
