Bestech Australia offer the Optocontrol 2600 high speed LED micrometer, from Micro-Epsilon, Germany. It is a measurement system with an integral high resolution CCD camera for geometrical measurements. The high sampling rate, better accuracy and resolution make this LED micrometer suitable for inspection of moving products in the production line.
Typical applications include high dynamic measurements on running conveyors, extrusion lines, drawing processes, on machines, in automated production, and for offline inspection for test and measurement.
The Optocontrol 2600 high speed LED micrometer measures the dimensions of a target or the position of an edge by using the shadow principle. The data obtained with a selection of various measurement programmes is output through analogue and digital interfaces. These include 0-10V DC with a range of ±10V DC, RS 232 or RS 422.
Using LED light with a telecentric lens system in a non contact micrometer enables measurement with accuracy and repeatability. The system is durable and is resistant to dust, dirt and stray light. Measurement against glass and transparent objects is also possible.
The measuring range for this dimension gauge is 40mm, and it has a sampling rate of 2.3kHz. Non-linearity is ±3 µm, while resolution is 0.25 µm. Non-repeatability is ±1 µm. The Optocontrol 2600 high speed LED micrometer can operate in temperatures of 0-50°C, using a supply voltage of 24V DC. The light source and receiver have a protection class of IP 64. LED technology and the lack of mechanical components provide for a long service life for this high performance dimension gauge.
