Bestech Australia introduces an extremely compact (96 x 85 x 33mm), lightweight (380g) laser profile scanner - The scanCONTROL 2600/2900 optoelectronic sensor with integrated controller, flexible installation and interface options.
The 2600/2900 sensor is small enough to fit in your pocket, yet got all what it matters: The scanCONTROL 2600 offers a measuring rate up to 640 points per profile whilst the scanCONTROL 2900 up to 1280 points per profile and up to 4000 profiles per second can be transferred to a PC for further processing.
The measuring range starts at a distance of 53 mm from the sensor and can be extended up to 390 mm.
Meanwhile, the following interfaces are available for scanCONTROL 2600/2900: Gigabit Ethernet interface for transferring profiles and a multi-purpose interface for RS422 connections. Digital inputs can be used for synchronising and triggering, or as encoder inputs. An additional output unit can be used to provide more output signals.
Data transfer and configuration of the ME scanCONTROL sensors from Bestech Australia can be done via software including LabVIEW, in which a 3D model can be generated.
scanCONTROL 2600/2900 is particularly ideal for applications that require a low sensor weight yet high-precision profile and dimensional measurements, for example, in automotive production or when sensors are mounted to robot arms.
