Confocal, compact sensor with high precision for OEM applications
Micro-Epsilon: The new, confocal chromatic confocalDT IFS2404-2 sensor is used for high precision distance and thickness measurements of transparent materials. With a diameter of just 12 mm, the sensor can also be integrated into restricted installation space. The innovative lens enables high measurement accuracy and a small light spot diameter.
Due to a special lens technology, the confocalDT IFS2404-2 provides high resolutions at a small light spot size. Together with the confocalDT 2421/2422 controller, the new sensor offers an excellent price/performance ratio for OEM purposes.
The confocalDT 2421 and 2422 controllers from Micro-Epsilon set new industrial standards in precision, confocal measurement technology. Available as either a single- or a dual-channel version, these confocal chromatic measuring systems are an economical solution, particularly for high volume applications. They operate on a non-contact and therefore wear-free basis while the active exposure regulation feature in the CCD line accurately and rapidly compensates for changing surfaces.
Data is output in real time via an EtherCAT interface. The thickness calibration feature enables precise thickness measurements across the entire measuring range of the sensor.
