High-speed optical micrometer with 16,000Hz sampling rate

Keyence is launching the LS-9000 Series high-speed optical micrometer that has a sampling rate of 16,000Hz. It has no moving parts and is designed for ultra-high speed and accuracy.

Conventional micrometers have typically adopted a 'laser scan method' using physical moving parts, resulting in a limitation on the ability to improve speed and accuracy. However, the LS-9000 Series utilises a 'high-speed exposure CMOS + high-intensity green LED' method that eliminates the need for moving parts, thereby achieving improvements in speed and accuracy. The elimination of moving parts also gives the dvice high durability and longevity.

Fitted with a high-speed exposure CMOS and high-intensity green LED, the LS-9000 Series is claimed to have achieved the fastest sampling rate in its class (16,000Hz). Even fast-moving targets can be measured accurately at narrow pitches. The high-speed exposure CMOS ensures reliable image capturing and stable measurement even when targets are vibrating. Moreover, the Monitor CMOS cancels errors resulting from tilted targets.

The no-moving-parts design also reduces the need for maintenance. Furthermore, the LED light source is less affected by electrical noise, resulting in stable use in factory environments for longer periods. A new, specialised ultra-fine diameter/gap tool ensures reliable measurement of wires 10um in diameter.
