Micro-Epsilon to unveil new blue laser sensors at Sensors & Systems Show

01 September, 2011

Visitors at this year’s Sensors+Systems for Control and Instrumentation exhibition (14-15 September 2011) will have the opportunity to view a range of new sensors from precision measurement specialist Micro-Epsilon UK. Highlights will include the official UK launch of the company’s blue laser sensors, as well as demonstrations of the ThermoImager TIM160, and the ScanControl 2710 laser profile sensor with Ethernet interface.

           
Blue laser sensors
Blue laser sensors operate on the laser triangulation measuring principle and use blue laser technology. The sensors are said to be ideal for measurements on hot, glowing metals; particularly in hot steel processing, as well as for measuring organic materials such as skin, foodstuffs, plastics, veneers and wood.
 
Low-cost alternative to thermal imagers
Powered and operated via a USB 2.0 interface, the ThermoImager TIM160 is a low-cost  inline radiometric thermal imaging camera that provides temperature images and profiles of a target area. This plug-and-play unit is supplied with a full software package that enables the user to configure all device parameters, as well as enabling the real time capture (at 120Hz full frame rate) and storage of images or video of an event for slow motion play back or snapshots at a later date – an important feature in R&D and failure diagnostics work.
Rather than supplying the ThermoImager TIM160 with a single factory calibrated optical lens, Micro-Epsilon offers users the option of up to three interchangeable lenses (6, 23 and 48 degree FOV). For R&D test engineers who may be unsure of which applications they will use the device for, the three interchangeable lenses cater for every possible field of view for temperature monitoring tasks.
 
Higher resolution laser profile scanner
Also on the stand will be the new ScanControl 2710 series with integrated Ethernet connection. These sensors are extremely compact with an integrated controller, providing a complete solution for the measurement of angles, steps, position and 2D profiles. Profiling of adhesive beads, weld seams, grooves and gaps is also possible.
