Laser scanner offers new performance level for series applications
Precision, versatility and a compact design are often decisive characteristics in industrial series applications. The new scanCONTROL 2500 laser profile scanners from Micro-Epsilon are specially designed to meet these high requirements while being positioned in a favorable price segment.
In production lines and automation processes, sensors must respond to high requirements in terms of precision and design when solving measurement tasks such as the inspection of adhesive beads or edge detection. The new scanCONTROL 2500 laser profile scanners from Micro-Epsilon combine these characteristics and offer, in addition, a favorable price/performance ratio, particularly for serial applications. Their advantages can be found in their compact and lightweight design without requiring an external controller, their high signal stability and their various interfaces that enable easy integration into machines.
The laser scanners are available in two performance classes as COMPACT and SMART sensors.
The COMPACT laser profile scanners transmit raw profiles and are integrated into the customer software. Operating according to the international GigE Vision standard, they can also be integrated in industrial image processing systems.
The scanCONTROL 2510 SMART sensors provide selected measurement values which are evaluated in the sensor. Configuration and parameter setup is via the scanCONTROL Configuration Tools software. All settings are directly stored in the sensor which autonomously performs the measurements. Connection to a PC or controller is not necessary. The sensor executes up to four measuring programs in parallel while delivering four measurement results per profile. This is how the sensor measures, among other things, angles, steps, and gaps at high precision.
A wide range of sensor accessories are available including protection housings, different cable types and interface converters.
