OptoNCDT 1610/1630 laser displacement sensor

Share this on social media:

Micro-Epsilon has launched the 100kHz true analogue laser displacement sensor, which can be used in environments including production, R&D and test labs. Typical applications include impact/drop/crash tests; position control of engine pistons; length, angle and thickness measurements; flatness control; checking dimensional accuracy of components; and vibration measurements.

The optoNCDT 1610/1630 system comprises of a sensor, a controller and a connecting cable. The controller is equipped with analogue (current and voltage) and Ethernet interfaces. It operates at a frequency of up to 100kHz and has a measuring range of 0.5 to 50mm. Dynamic resolution is 0.1 to 0.18 per cent FSO. Maximum linearity is +/- 0.3 per cent.

The sensor head is protected to IP64. For harsh environments, three types of protective enclosure are available: an integrated front window and water-resistant housing (IP68); integrated compressed air cooling; and an open slot for air purging of the measurement gap, and sensor cooling.
