NEW AWARD WINNING COMPACT LASER SENSOR FROM BESTECH

Due to their unique design concept based on compact size, intelligent signal processing and precision, the new optoNCDT 1320 and 1420 laser triangulation sensors stand out at the coveted Red Dot Award 2016 and won the top prize in the Industrial Design category.

The winning laser triangulation sensors convinced the jury due to the perfect interaction of several factors.

Mini sensor optoNCDT 1320 triangulation sensor from Bestech Australia and manufactured by Micro-Epsilon, offers maximum precision in a minimum of space. Low weight combined with compact size, the optoNCDT 1320 can be easily integrated into restricted installation spaces and is ideally suitable for dynamic applications.

optoNCDT laser sensors are based on the triangulation measuring principle. These sensors measure displacement, distance and position on a non-contact basis. The controller for these laser triangulation sensors is integrated in the housing, which simplifies the installation many times over.

The measuring rate of optoNCDT 1320 sensors can be adjusted to up to 2kHz. The Auto Target Compensation (ATC) feature enables precise control of the distance signal regardless of target colour or brightness. Very small objects can be detected reliably due to the small and sharply projected measurement spot size.

Due to their excellent price/performance ratio, the sensors are particularly suitable for high volume applications in machine integration and factory automation.

The extremely small laser spot size, which is focused through an optical system to a very small diameter, enables the measurement of extremely fine details. These predefined presets and the quality slider enable easy sensor configuration and parameter set up.

The sensors can be used in numerous industries. As well as in the electronics production, they are also applied in the packaging industry, wood processing, logistics, medical engineering, laser engraving equipment and quality assurance.

Further application examples are pick-and-place machines, inline bodywork and tool positioning, inner diameter of pipes and the measurement of plastics parts, where the penetration of the laser into different materials and colours is a particular challenge.

The Red Dot award is a globally acknowledged seal of quality. A 41-member jury of experts rates the best products of the year from a record-breaking 5,214 products from 57 nations.
