Bestech Australia presents the optoNCDT ILR series of laser distance sensors, from Micro-Epsilon, Germany. These optoelectronic sensors have been designed for non-contact displacement, distance and speed measurement. Thanks to a non-contact measurement technique, the sensors are wear-free and have a long service life.
There are four series available depending on the application, each with different focuses on accuracy and measuring speed. The sensors are designed for operation with and without reflectors and are thus very flexible to use. Due to the robust construction and compact design, the ILR sensors are used indoors and outdoors for many different measurement tasks, both for static as well as moving measurement objects. Positioning the sensor precisely is easily done due to the switchable sighting laser.
A reflector allows for a variety of measuring ranges from a few metres to 3000m. The large measuring range of the laser distance sensors enables measurements on critical surfaces such as hot metal from a safe distance, or the regulation of large travel displacements with a small installation size.
The optoNCDT ILR series of laser distance sensors are designed to be used in a number of applications including: positioning of automotive parts; speed measurement in a crash test; position measurement on gantry cranes; classification and sorting on conveyors; level measurement in containers, tanks and silos; acquisition of coil diameters in the manufacturing of steel, paper or fabric’ many other measurements of dimension, distance or speed ; and software for the sensor is included as standard for easy configuration and data analysis.
The optoNCDT ILR laser distance sensor is available in Australia and New Zealand from Bestech Australia Pty Ltd.
