Bestech releases new compact confocal sensor with superior precision

Bestech Australia introduces a new range of non-contact distance sensors from Micro-Epsilon,
designed to measure at sub-micrometre accuracies. The new distance sensors are also
suitable for the one-sided thickness measurement of different materials.

in Germany, Micro-Epsilon’s new IFS2406 series confocal sensors are non-contact
and maintenance-free, providing long-term stability. The confocalDT from
Micro-Epsilon includes the fastest controller currently available in the world
and achieves measurement rates up to 10 kHz using an LED light source and 70 kHz
using a Xenon light source. The IFS2406 sensors are specially designed for vacuum

features and advantages of the new IFS2406 series confocal sensors include high
precision measurement results in displacement and distance measurement tasks;
thickness measurement of transparent objects enabled; wide range of sensors and
various interface options such as Ethernet, EtherCAT, RS422 and analogue output
extending application range; compact size, submicrometer accuracy and small
spot size for measurement; axial and radial measuring directions enabling
versatile application; and measurement channel parameterised via a user-friendly
web interface.

addition to distance measurements on reflecting or transparent surfaces, the
new sensors can also be applied for one-sided thickness measurement of
transparent film, plates or layers. The IFS2406 series finds application in
displays and glass production, medical engineering and research and

Bestech Australia is the sole distributor of Micro-Epsilon sensors in
Australia and New Zealand.
