Bestech Australia has introduced a new triangulation displacement sensor
recommended for use in demanding environments such as food and process
Featuring a measuring range of 10-500mm, the new optoNCDT 1420 smart
displacement sensor can be easily installed in challenging areas since the entire
electronics for signal processing is housed in the compact sensor body and requires
no external controller.
Lightweight at just 60g, the displacement sensor is suitable for dynamic
acceleration tasks on machine axes or robot arms. The high performance lens
generates an extremely small light spot size, which enables reliable detection
of even the very smallest of target objects.
Key features also include Auto Target Compensation (ATC) ensuring stable
measurement results regardless of changing surface colours or brightness; extended
web interface enabling simple sensor control with adjustable intuitive settings
available for various measurement tasks; and quality slider allowing easy and
quick adaptation to static and dynamic processes.
Measuring range 10 to 500mm; Linearity from 8µm;
Reproducibility from 0.5µm; Measuring rate 4kHz; RS422 interface.
