BLUE LASER SENSOR THRIVES ON REFLECTIVE SURFACES

Bestech now offers a blue laser sensor specially designed for displacement and distance measurements on directly reflecting surfaces. The optoNCDT 2300-2DR is compact sensor that operates at high speeds on these surfaces and provides maximum precision in the nanometre range.

The sensor is particularly useful for thickness measurements of flat glass, distance measurements on annealed glass and assembly monitoring of extremely small parts.

The measuring rate can be set up to 49kHz, which is why the sensor is ideal for process monitoring tasks. An advanced real-time-surface-compensation (A-RTSC) feature enables precision real-time surface compensation for different surface types. Data output is via Ethernet, RS422 or EtherCAT.

In operation, the sensor is installed parallel to the measurement object. The blue laser light is directly reflected onto the receiving optics by the measurement object. Unlike a red laser, the blue laser light does not penetrate the measurement object. A sharp point is projected onto the surface, which enables a stable signal on the receiver element – achieving nanometre resolution. In addition, the extremely small laser spot size allows the sensor to detect very small objects.
