Intelligent CMOS and CCD laser sensors
for displacement and position measurement

Diese Seite ist auch in Deutsch verfügbar.

The non-contact displacement optoNCDT series uses optical triangulation as a measuring principle. The visible laser that is used is rated as laser class 2.

A position sensor measures with a large stand-off distance and a very small measuring spot diameter. An analog PSD module (series 1607) or a digital CCD array (series 1401, 1700, 1800 and 2200) is used as the position-sensitive measuring element.

Laser sensors with measuring ranges from 0.5 mm up to 500 mm are available. Special models of the sensors measure with µm precision and superior resolution against specular reflecting surfaces.
