Laser line profile scanners now offer larger measuring fields

Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has extended its scanCONTROL LLT30xx range of 2D/3D laser line profile sensors (profile scanners) with two larger measuring fields now available. The scanCONTROL LLT30xx-430 and scanCONTROL LLT30xx-600 provide measuring fields of up to 560 x 390 mm and 788 x 610 mm respectively.

The larger measuring fields open up greater opportunities for 2D/3D profile measurements in a wide variety of industrial applications, including automation, machine building, quality control, production and process monitoring. Due to their large measuring range, one of these new sensors can perform the same task that previously would have required several sensors.

Laser line profile scanners from Micro-Epsilon are among the highest performing profile sensors in terms of accuracy and measuring rate. All common measuring ranges from 10 mm to 788 mm are now available.

The scanCONTROL LLT30xx laser profile scanners provide calibrated 2D profile data with up to 9.6 million points per second. The laser scanner has an integrated controller and various interfaces (including Profinet, EtherCAT and EtherNet/IP) that allow fast, easy integration into production lines and machines. With a maximum profile frequency of 10kHz and innovative exposure control, the scanners enable precise profile measurements in high speed, dynamic processes.

A high resolution sensor matrix offers a resolution of 2,048 points per profile, allowing measurements of extremely fine surface/geometrical details. Due to their high accuracy, high profile frequency and versatility, the laser scanners are suitable for demanding applications, including measurement of angles, steps, gaps, distances and circles.

The user can choose from predefined operating modes to suit each measurement task. The ‘High Dynamic Range’ (HDR) mode is for optimal profile detection on difficult/inhomogeneous or dark surfaces. In HDR mode, the rows of the sensor matrix are exposed differently but simultaneously, which avoids time offsets between recordings, allowing reliable measurements of moving objects. The areas for auto-exposure can be selected individually. Other operating modes include a ‘High Resolution’ mode for maximum precision measurements and a ‘High Speed’ mode for ultra-fast measurements on rapidly moving objects.

The scanCONTROL LLT30xx-430 and LLT30xx-600 are available with a range of optional extras, including hardware switch-off of the laser line, and increased laser power (class 3R).
