Laser Displacement Sensor 1200 Series, 6.35 to 50.8mm

The 1200 series laser distance sensor delivers a complete non contact laser displacement measurement system complete in one compact package. This sensor uses laser triangulation to accurately measure distances from materials detect such as metals, rubber, plastic and wood products.

The series includes four (4) DSP sensors with measurement ranges from 6.35 to 50 mm. Pair two 1200 series laser sensors together for thickness measurements or groups several together to make a web monitoring system. This laser sensor has been successfully used to measure production of lumber, metals, and rubber in line under production conditions and has also been used to measure parts on stationary inspection benches.

This is our lowest cost and most compact line of precision laser triangulation laser.

In-process thickness and distance measurements. For boards, fiberboards and plasterboards we offer turn key systems to measure thickness, width, edge and edge and thickness profiles. The measurements are made right on the transport mechanism. All the measurements are processed by the system’s PC. Results are tabulated and graphed for easy operator analysis. All parameters including edge, width and thickness tolerances can be used for alarm conditions.

For the manufacturing environment, we provide a wide variety of distance measuring lasers to meet the numerous needs for non contact displacement and thickness measurements. All sensors incorporate the latest in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology which significantly reduces the laser speckle problem enabling them to easily measure materials ranging from black rubber to shiny steel. Even hot materials can be measured with the DSP series.

All of our DSP sensors are a complete system in one rugged housing. A separate controller is not required. Sensor outputs
can include, analog, RS 232, RS 485 Profibus and Ethernet. In addition tolerance alarms are available.
